    initial v1  
    1 I'm having the same problem - my colleague can re-eanble the alt-gr key by giving focus to the vuirttual machine and then using the host key to make it lose focus but for me that does not work.  One additional strange effect is that if I type alt-gr+4 (should be $ on a swedish keyboard) then some programs (e.g. aptana studio) simply produce no character at all while some (notepad++, putty) produce a 4.  If I log in to the virtual machine itself then i get $ but if i log in via putty I get 4.  Win 7 64-bit with ubuntu server as guest.

    3 If others can confirm that a new version fixes it then I may try to upgrade.  however, the last time I upgraded virtual box I lost half a day to getting my networking working again on the host, so I'm not in a position to just try it, sorry.
