#5907 closed defect (duplicate)

Loss of keyboard in host UI -> duplicate of #3894

Reported by: Joseph Reagle Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 3.1.2
Keywords: keyboard Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Linux


As discussed here, running Kubuntu 9.10 with XP guest, the keyboard will sometimes stop working in the host UI. It seems to be clearable by exiting VBox (shutdown guest, or suspend) or "Press and release Host key, press and release left-Ctrl seems to clear it."

I just lost the keyboard in the host, and tried the alt (host) + ctrl trick and it didn't work. (It sometimes does.) I had to shut down the guest to get keyboard back.
