I have been experiencing this on a regular basis with VMWare Workstation
6.0.4 build-93057.  I am running an AMD Phenom 9850+ BE with the 64bit
version of Kubuntu.  My kernel version is  2.6.24-19 I am running KDE4
and I am using the Nvidia Xorg driver.  I'm glad that the "setxkbmap"
workaround was posted.  Up to now I've just been logging out of KDE4 and
logging back in which is a total pain.  I havn't noticed any actual
application stability issues on the Linux side while running VMWare as
some have reported, but this keyboard issue is extremely irritating.  My
system is currently up to date with the latest versions of everything.
