I feel the same as the reporter of Ticket #778, about the VM instantly passing keyboard focus to the guest being very annoying for people such as myself who use the keyboard to switch between windows in the host system.

However, instead of disabling this focus-passing, I propose another interesting feature that will solve this problem: Just like the mouse focus is seamlessly shared between the host and guest (with guest additions), maybe the ALT+TAB window switching inside the guest could be integrated with that of the host. So that you can somehow switch through both host and guest windows without needing other keyboard shortcuts / mouse clicks inbetween.

+1 for this - that'd be great. also it would be great to have the guest windows as seperate windows on the host anyway, so i can activate each of them through the host taskbar (like vmware (i-know,i-know) does it).
