Mouse locking in VMWare Console when run within VirtualBox guest

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
When using VMWare VSphere console version 4 within a VirtualBox guest (WinXP SP2), the mouse will intermittently (and seemingly randomly) "lock up" and not respond to clicks. The mouse will move around but clicking either within the VMWare console screen or within the VirtualBox guest screen does not function. In addition most keyboard controls seem not to work. The only way I've found to correct it is to use Cntrl-Delete and force the VBox guest to bring up task-manager, then kill off all the vmware processes.
This is on a Linux host (Ubuntu 8.10). Log file is attached.
