VB 4.0.2/4.0.4 dual monitor mouse problems

Reported by: rolandyoung Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.4 Keywords: mouse dual monitor 4.0
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


When using VB 4.0.2 or vb 4.0.4 on Windows 7 (64bit) or XP (32bit) dual monitor setups the mouse becomes unusable when the guest screen is on the 2nd monitor. The guest mouse area becomes horizontaly restricted and the pointer incorrectly returns to the host (as if right ctrl key was pressed) when moved beyond the boundary. These boundaries change when the mouse is moved quickly. My guest OS is Tinycore. The mouse behaves correctly when the guest window is dragged back to the 1st monitor. This problem does not occur with VB 3.2.12 and earlier releases. I am not using guest additions.

I have exactly the same problem since 4.x, works fine with 3.2.12. My host: WinXp 32-bit and Windows 7 32-bit, guest: QNX wihtout addition, Fedora 14 with mouse integration disabled.

But it works fine with guest "Fedora 14" with mouse integration.

I can confirm this behavior for version 4.0.6 on a Windows 7 32-bit host, but didn't have a problem before when using 4.0.4.

Ticket #8668 seems to describe the same problem. Should be merged.
