Command (Meta) key becomes "stuck"

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Sporadically, my OpenSolaris 2009.06 guest will register the Command (Meta) key as always being depressed.

This makes it impractical to map the Command key to shortcuts in the guest as anytime I press a letter or key containing the second half of the shortcut, it will trigger even though the Command key is not currently depressed.

Does so for Windows clients, too.

Also does this with Linux hosts hosting the same windoze clients.

EXTREMELY annoying, as this happens about every five minutes or so. I start typing into something, and all of a sudden a dozen kinds of Windows command key combinations fire off in the virtual machine.

Oh, pressing/releasing the command key 'fixes' it.
