Ticket #8371 (new defect)
VirtualBox 4.x does not correctly honor remapped keys in VMs on Linux

Description (last modified by michael) (diff)
I use xmodmap to swap left control and capslock keys on Linux (Debian Lenny x64) and VirtualBox 3.x supports the key mappings correctly in VMs (Windows and Linux) but VirtualBox 4.x (including 4.0.4) does not. Here is the behavior on VirtualBox 4.0.4:
- When left CTRL key is pressed, capslock is turned on/off but control key code is also sent to VM
- When left CAPSLOCK key is pressed, control key code is NOT sent to VM
This problem makes VirtualBox 4.x unusable for me.
