Ticket #644 (closed defect: fixed)
VirtualBox randomly causes mouse to jump to top left corner permanently in Ubuntu Gutsy host, XP VM
|Reported by:||neilcawse||Owned by:|
Also applies to 1.4.0. While working in an XP virtual machine, occasionally the mouse "jumps" position by a couple of inches. Every now and then, the mouse seems to jump into a state that it cannot recover. It moves to the top left corner of the screen and is trapped there. The mouse button still works but you cannot move it off that position. This occurs both for the built in trackpad and any external mouse. Restarting X fixes the problem. I suspect there may be an issue with Gutsy or my drivers causing the jump but VirtualBox should not trap the mouse that way. I can provide further data if needs be xorg.conf or anything.
