Pause/Freeze on y key-press

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I'm pretty sure no one is going to take this seriously, but I have to try - I have enough anecdotal evidence.
Running Ubuntu 9.04, VirtualBox 3.0.10 (though to be honest it was in the previous version too - 3.06). Windows XP is the guest.
Not every time, but at least 4 out of 5 times, I type a 'y' in the guest (email, skype, etc) there is a short pause. Sometimes up to 3 seconds before the application responds.. The y is then not displayed and the subsequent keypresses (quite a lot if I'm typing quickly), all appear at once after some lag. This means when I type "you" I more often than not end up with "ou".
I don't know what you need to pin this down - I'm using the host browser to create this ticket and haven't had a single issue with all the y's in this post. The key is seated properly and functions fine in the host session.
