[Bug 195982] Re: Shift key (and caps lock) stop working when using VMWare

Here's a workaround that I haven't heard mentioned yet.  I'm using
VMWare workstation to run winxp on ubuntu 8.04.  I had the same problems
described in this email when running the vmware session in full screen
mode.  The setxkbmap worked for me, but was a annoying to have to
repeatedly apply.

What I've been doing instead (for about a month now without noticable
problems) is to launch the vmware session and then use remote desktop to
access the session and run in full screen mode.  Its a bit convoluted
(remote desktop to vmware session) but seems to work.
