Mouse capturing problem

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

If the mouse is captured, and I'm running a guest that doesn't have guest additions (read: OpenBSD), pressing one of the host keys that triggers an "Are You Sure?", like HOST+R doesn't release the mouse, and I cannot answer the dialog box. In that state, the VM is still stealing all input, so using the PC is impossible. Switching to a tty and VBoxManage controlvm poweroff <VM> didn't work. kill-ing it did.

This issue may be related to me using "window focus strictly under mouse", which is an option under KDE.

A workaround would be to immediately unlock the pointer whenever a dialog appears like that.
