Ticket #6947 (new defect)
VBoxSharedClipBoardClass blocks when copying from host. (XP guest, CentOS host)
|Reported by:||afante||Owned by:|
Since several versions ago, I have been experiencing clipboard blocking problems.
When copying contents (most of the cases, they are formatted texts), VBoxSharedClipBoardClass blocks, or locks up, so that the application in the guest stops responding.
I recently found that killing the virtual box service in the guest machine will return control back to the guest application, but the clipboard sharing between guest and host will be lost. Restarting the virtual box service on the guest does not help regain the sharing.
The problem happens at some time, I still cannot reproduce it at will.
