Keyboard focus lost when minimizing and restoring virtualbox window => Fixed in SVN
Both the host and guest are Windows XP, I have not tried any other O/S.
Steps to re-create:
- Start guest O/S and open notepad.
- Single click virtualbox in the taskbar to minimize.
- Single click virtualbox in the taskbar to restore.
- Try and type something in the guest O/S notepad.
Things to note:
The problem seems to be that when the window is restored, the keyboard focus is on the virtualbox window rather than the guest. This can be confirmed by pressing ALT which activates the keyboard shortcuts for the virtualbox menu.
To regain focus you have to press ALT twice or click somewhere on the host O/S and then click back into the guest O/S.
I believe this to be a defect as using the minimize icon or minimizing by right clicking virtualbox in the taskbar, does not cause the problem.
