Bug Description

I am running Windows XP in Virtualbox on host Ubuntu 10.04. For convenience I normally set my virtual XP into seamless mode, a new function Virtualbox provided lately..

However, Shutter installed on host fails to take screenshot when I try to take screenshot on windows in my virtual XP. It gave an error msg " Keyboard could not be grabbed" ..

If I set Virtual XP back to normal mode, Shutter works perfectly fine..

Any idea on this problem please?

Confirmed. It is because the non-visible VirtualBox window grabs keyboard focus immediately when the Shutter window hides. Are you able to activate the selection mode via Shutter's tray icon?
