Entering Fullscreen with Guest - Disrupts Synergy

Description (last modified by michael) (diff)
The cursor is lost, and also communication is disrupted between my Host and other PC's via Synergy when a GUEST is run in FullScreen Mode.
While running Synergy on a Host (Ubuntu 10.04 - 64Bit) everything works fine. I can access guest systems, and move between my Host system and other systems via Synergy. But when I enter FullScreen Mode, communication between the Host and other PC's is interrupted. I have control of the guest system until the cursor hits the edge of the screen. Then I lose the cursor and have to exit FullScreen Mode to regain control of any system.
I'm running VBox 3.2.8. My host is Ubuntu 10.04 (64 Bit) with an Ubuntu 10.04 (32 Bit) and a WinXP Guest. I have an Ubuntu 10.04 sys to my left and a WinXP sys to my right. When I go Full Screen with a Guest System, it's like Synergy can no longer talk to the other remote systems. When my cursor hits the system edge, it disappears and will not return UNTIL I EXIT Full Screen mode on the Guest System. I need to be full screen in my Ubuntu Guest system 90% of the time, with Synergy still able to work on the Host.
