Any ideas, or paths of investiagtion on this one ?
My shared clipboard usually stops working after a few days of the VM running.. sometimes hours, but after a week, it is always broken.
Note that (at least for me), copying from the host to the guest continues to work (but I can't copy from guest to host)
This is highly frustrating, and my only workaround is to use a shared folder and create files in it using notepad, which I can then open on the host and copy into the clipboard that way.
Virtualbox 3.1.2 r56127, on ubuntu 9.04
EDIT: I thought my guest additions were up to date, but weren't quite there.. so have updated and rebooted the guest.. will wait and see if it fails again.
EDIT 2: Yep.. the problem is back again, after leaving the machine overnight and coming back to it in the morning. Symptoms are the same - can copy/paste from host to guest, but not from guest to host.
EDIT 3: Upgraded virtualbox and guest additions to 3.1.4 (v57640), rebooted and seeing the same problem after 2 days.
