Public bug reported:

Ubuntu 8.04 with VirtualBox commercial version installed.  Win98 and
Win2K installed in virtual environments.

Problem:  In virtual mode, keyboard and mouse entries appear to generate
a HUGE number of event message if activated too long.  If the system
falls behind, these events can cause an apparent lockup while events are
slowly acted out.  No other keyboard or mouse activity is acknowledged
during this time.

The only thing that works is to momentarily press the power button,
which brings up Ubuntu's exit dialog.  However. other than shutting
down, there is limited choice here.

Suggested solution:  Add a capability to purge the event message queue
of all pending keyboard and mouse events as an added choice in the exit
dialog.  If this is performed, it would appear to instantaneously
restore keyboard and mouse input capability.
