How do you send Ctrl-Alt-Del?  Using the F8 menu?

In case windows doesn't accept the password:
Does it help to press the left Ctrl key once?
Does it help to press the left Alt key once?
Comment 5 Gerd Hoffmann 2010-11-30 04:26:39 EST
Is possibly a duplicate of bug #643317
Comment 6 Gerd Hoffmann 2010-12-01 03:11:32 EST
Can you test whenever kvm-83-218.el5 fixes the bug please?
Comment 7 Suqin Huang 2010-12-02 01:28:42 EST
1. reproduce in kvm-83-213.el5
keyboard work after pressing the left Ctrl key once.
keyboard doesn't work after pressing the left Alt key once.

Ctrl+Alt+Delete is sent by F8 menu in bug #643317, Ctrl+Alt+Delete is sent by kerboard in this bug. they are not duplicate.

2. Can not reproduce in kvm-83-218.el5
