I too have this problem - but it only appeared after I added a Windows
XP guest to my Linux VMWare host (prior to that I only had a Linux guest
and it worked fine).  Dunno if that helps.

I did try the solution suggested above
(http://nthrbldyblg.blogspot.com/2008/06/vmware-and-fubar-keyboard-
effect.html) by krouskop  where you add a number of lines to
~.vmware/config and it appears to be working (after restarting the
VMWare service).

Thanks guys!
