'@' symbol cannot be typed in Windows XP guest under Ubuntu 7.04 host using UK Internationali keyboard layout

I am running a Windows XP guest on VirtualBox 1.5.0 under an Ubuntu 7.04 host.

If the host machine is configured to use the UK International (with dead keys) keyboard layout, then the '@' symbol cannot be typed in Windows. If the host machine is reconfigured to use UK keyboard layout, then everything works fine.

Otherwise all works perfectly!

It looks to me like the UK intl keyboard is like the standard one, but with `, ", , ' and ~ replaced by dead keys. Is that correct, or have I missed anything?

In case that wasn't clear from a layout point of view, those characters were:

` " ^ ' ~

You are correct - so @ should not be affected. It is Shift + ' on the physical keyboard.

Even @ followed by [space] does not work, so it is not as though it thinks of @ as a dead key.

I have sent you an updated keyboard handler to test by private mail. Please let me know if it solves the problem for you.

Thank you - I cannot test before Friday as am away from the machine. Will let you know then.
