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

In my case, the caps-lock key also stops working, which I have mapped
via xmodmap to Mod3. It happens reliably when I do ctrl-alt-enter to
enter fullscreen mode, and then ctrl-alt to get back out to the host OS;
it doesn't appear to happen if I don't enter fullscreen mode (even if I
use ctrl-alt to take focus away from the guest).

VMware server: 1.0.6 build-91891
VMware tools: 1.0.6 build-91891
kernel:  Ubuntu 2.6.24-17.31-generic (x86_64)
X server: 1:7.3+10ubuntu10.1
X driver: intel

(I have -proposed enabled as well)
