    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Reopened
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Win32SS
    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:

      VBox 4.3.4

      Description

      Steps:

      • Install ROS in VirtualBox
      • Install Guest Additions
      • Reboot
      • Note: Mouse Integration works as expected
      • Disable Mouse Integration (Right Ctrl+I) (so that it is emprisoned within the guest)

      Expected: When the VM has captured the mouse, it can't leave the window and the cursor is visible in the VM

      Actual: Mouse cursor works as expected when captured, but is invisible

      Without Guest Additions installed, cursor is visible just fine.
      Tested with r61678.

      Important addition for better reproducibility:
      When the bug is exposed after rebooting ros, the bug will get "automatically fixed" aka hidden as soon as the mouse pointer changes e.g. to an hourglass for a fraction of a second. This means you will not see it anymore after e.g. opening file-browser via Win+E
