v 2.1 screws up Windows keyboard mapping when shutting down a guest OS

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I just upgraded to 2.1, and I find that when I save the state of a guest OS (to close it) something mysterious happens to my laptop.

The keyboard mapping becomes "confused" and assigns random functions to certain keys. For example, the escape key becomes the same as the "Windows" key. It's not always the same key that is affected.

The only work around I have found is to call up the windows language bar to assign a random keyboard mapping, then I can revert back to US and every seems fine after that.

This problem started when I upgraded to 2.1, it never occured with 2.0.4

I also find that the mapping gets scrambled sometimes when going from a full screen mode to a windowed mode. This is on Vista.
