disable hostkey extradata seems to not allow keyboard capture by guests

Reported by: tonedef Owned by:

Host type: Linux


Before 4.0.6 I could run: VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/Input/HostKey 0

this would disable the host key entirely. As of 4.0.6 this seems to not allow my keyboard to capture in the guest. I can recover keyboard capture by unsetting the extradata.

Perhaps in fixing the bug below this behaviour may have been triggered?
