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

Reported by: reagle Owned by:
Priority: minor 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.
