Ticket #5550 (closed defect: wontfix)
On OSX CMD-R is mapped to restarting the virtual machine

This is more of an annoyance than a bug.
On OSX CMD-R is commonly used to refresh the state of an app. For example, in Safari and Firefox, refreshing the page. As a web developer hitting CMD-R is more muscle memory for me more so than probably any other command combination. So when I use VirtualBox with Windows and IE I something hit CMD-R by habit to refresh the browser. And this restarts the virtual machine.
IMO mapping CMD-R to restart the virtual machine was a poor choice.
