"Host Key = None" broken => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: Paolo Virtual Owned by:

Description

The semantics of "Host Key = None" changed in a bad way in version 4.0.6:

  • prior versions: "Host key = None" means there are no host key shortcuts available
  • 4.0.6: "Host key = None" means that any key you press is interpreted as a shortcut => you cannot type anymore in the guest.

We very much prefer the semantics of prior versions, as it gives you a means to disable the shortcuts.
