Ticket #9816 (closed defect: invalid)
Emacs sees both Command and Option as the Super key -> not a VirtualBox bug

Problem: emacs running on the guest sees both the Command Key and the Option Key as "super" key.
Typing (in emacs) C-h c Command-A shows "s-a", typing C-h c Option-A shows "s-a".
It's darned near impossible to use emacs without an Alt/Meta key, hence I am setting the severity to "major"
Emacs is the only app with this problem: other apps have no problem differentiating Command and Option.
VirtualBox 4.1.4. Host is MacBook Pro, running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 (Software Update reports no updates available). Guest OS: CentOS 6, Ubuntu 11.04 (both have same problem)
Note: if I copy the VM to a WIndows machine and start it under Windows VirtualBox 4.1.4 then emacs works fine. So this seems like a Mac-specific problem.
