Releasing extended keys when focus lost doesn't work

When VirtualBox windows loses focus it notifies guest OS on releasing all keys currently pressed. It works for normal keys but not for extended (WIN key etc). For example ( I using linux as guest OS, E17 window manager ) I have Win+Fx hotkey for switching desktops in host X windows:
1) I run VirtualBox with Windows XP as guest OS on desktop 4
2) When VirtualBox window is active, press Win+F1
3) Switch back to desktop 4
4) Guest Windows still thinks that WIN key is pressed but it isn't ( for example pressing E without WIN launches explorer as if it were WIN+E )

I guess this bug is a result of misprint in VBoxConsoleView::releaseAllKeysPressed(). Here is patch I've used to fix this.
