Using pause button as host key works differently -> disallowed after (not in) 5.2.26/6.0.4

Description

Hi,

when you set the pause button as host key on a host that doesn't support mouse integration, pressing the pause button won't recover the mouse pointer.

If you are in a TTY (tested with Centos 7.6 minimal as guest) pressing pause will do nothing until you press Alt+F1, then it will release the cursor back to the host system.

Using pause as the host key is probably a bad idea. If anything the fix is not to allow it.
