Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I'm running Vbox 2.2.2 from a centos 5.3 linux (same as a redhat). The guest is a windows XP SP1, with Guest additions 2.2.2.
The problem : When I'm in photoshop, and trying to pan around, by pressing space bar (or Z), The host completely freeze when the cpu is 100% used. It stop freezing when releasing the hotkey, but it make the application un-useable.
By trying differents solution, I've found that it come from the repeat key in the host : By disabling it, no problems. Changing the rate just make the bug longer to appears, even really slow is not solving it.
With that solution, I've got no repeat in host or guest. I can't leave it like that for obvious reasons.
I've read some bug tickets concerning repeat key & event, and they were fixed. They are obviously not fixed, or it's not the same problem..
Nothing special in the log when the system hangs.
