Actually I want to overcome the problem described in ticket #373. It is really problematic not able to enter backslash and other chars on a German keyboard layout.
I use the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 with a Mac Mini. Host is Mac OS X Leopard.
My idea was the following: I tried to use two identical USB keyboards. One should be connected to the host. The other should be connected to the guest. However, when I enter the USB filter dialog, the virtualbox lists two devices with identical name "Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 ". I selected one of both to be used with the guest.
Then, I started the guest Windows XP. However, instead of connecting only one device of both to the guest, the virtualbox connects both USB devices (Not okay). It should be possible to distinguish between identical devices in case of multiplicity.
Then, I tried to use this with Windows Vista x64 as guest. Forget it, it starts to toggling and never starts up.
