keyboard dies sporadically -> fixed as of 23-Mar-2011

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Host: Ubuntu 9.04-64bit. Guest: Vista 32-bit. VB: 2.2.2
I always run the guest in full-screen mode, and it normally stays up and running for days or weeks at a time. But lately (starting with VB 2.2.0?) I find after the guest has been running for a few days the keyboard stops working. The CAPS LOCK key toggles the light, but other than that I cannot type anywhere. When it does that, I have no way to get back back to the host, and no way to turn off full-screen mode on the guest.
The mouse and apps in the guest continue to run fine. I can shut down my apps (outlook, openoffice) and then tell Windows to shut down. But nothing ever gets the keyboard back until the guest exits. Once I'm back on the host, then I start the guest again, and the process repeats itself every few days.
