While running an OS in VirtualBox on Ubuntu 10.10 amd64, I find the LCtrl(left-ctrl) key is not being properly detected. (The RCtrl(right-ctrl) is used by Virtual Box, but the LCtrl key should be available.) This makes programs like
Emacs, that heavily rely on the control key, not work correctly. Searching the Internet, I found similar complaints that were fixed in by turning off Show position of pointer when the Ctrl key is pressed" in mouse preferences. Since this is already turned off on my system (actually in both host and client OS's), I don't think this is the problem.
My question: is this a bug, a feature or operator error?
