Binary package hint: virt-manager

According to the documentation, 'If you click your mouse anywhere in the
graphical console window, the window will "grab" it and pop up a warning
informing you it has done so. You can then use the mouse normally inside
the console window. To  "break out" of the window, press the key
combination Ctrl+Alt.'

However, clicking in the console window is not the only way to have the
mosue grabbed. If the console windows has focus but hasn't grabbed the
mouse, pressing ctrl-alt, the "ungrab" key combination, will cause the
console window to grab it. I often experience this annoying behavior
when trying to switch virtual desktops using ctrl-alt and the arrow
