Entering certain key combinations cause dosbox under X
to stop taking keyboard input. For instance, sometimes
I accidentally type ctrl-alt-left/right to switch my
desktop while the mouse is locked in dosbox; after
that, I'm not able to input anything else with the
keyboard in dosbox. The keyboard still works in the
rest of the system.

I can reproduce this always with dosbox 0.63 and CVS
(updated around 2005-07-23 13:00).

    My initial guess.

    The window manager switches focus to a different window.
    when you switch back dosbox still thinks that you have
    ctrl-alt pressed
    (as it never got a keyrelease for that (the window manager
    ate those keys)

    So try pressing ctrl and alt once in dosbox when you get
    back to it again. then dosbox should get the key releases
    and it should work again.

    If that fixes the problem I'll see if can generate key
    releases on focus changes.
