Ticket #4208 (new defect)

Command-Q not passed to client OS

Reported by: gilpinheiro Owned by:

Host type: Mac OS X

Description

Certain key combinations are not being passed through to the client OS.

Usecase: Command-Q (in X11 as Meta-Q) to quit an application in the client OS results in the "Close virtual machine" dialog (and leads to a 'stuck' command key modifier after dismissal, until meta is pressed again).

Also see Command-H for another example of this problem

 http://www.virtualbox.org/changeset/1320 describes a fix, but from what I can tell has either not been applied, or does not work.

Partially related to Ticket #1668, but currently the exhibited behaviour is inconsistent with the behaviour of other keyboard combinations (i.e. pass everything to the client) - 1668 describes how passing through these key combos, if _optional_, may still be useful to some.

Still a problem in 4.2 RC2. It's a royal pain in the backside. In particular, it absolutely removes the ability to skip the Mac OS X registration process (which until 10.7 or so could only be accomplished by hitting Command-Q). Very annoying.
