cmd-tab does not work when mouse/keyboard are grabbed in a VM

Host type: Mac OS X


When a mouse is autograbbed by my windows guest (with guest additions installed) all the cmd- prefixed Virtual box specific shortcuts work as expected (e.g. cmd-f, cmd-p). However cmd-tab does not bring up the Mac OS/X application switcher.

Does not work neither in fullscreen nor in window mode.

cmd-tab stops working even when the mouse pointer is not grabbed. Use cmd-tab tto cycle through your windows until you reach the VM. The top menu bar changes to "VirtualBox VM", however the mouse pointer and keyboard are *not* going to the VM. Hitting cmd-tab does nothing now. I have to actually click on the desktop to focus Finder, then cmd-tab starts working again.
