I thought it worth bringing this up again (I'm sure its been mentioned in the forum somewhere but I can't find it).
When flipping back and forth between VRPC (all versions) and Windows I frequently (very frequently) get unwanted key presses or mouse clicks wherever the mouse pointer happens to be at the transition. This sometimes has dire consequences. Just imagine this scenario...
1. You switch to Windows.
2. RO mouse pointer starts rubber banding an area of the screen (but you don't notice it because the VRPC window is mostly out of view).
3. You do something in Windows.
4. You switch back to VRPC full screen and a mouse click occurs over a button that injects a control-X to the appliaction with input focus (lets say, the Filer)
5. If you have QuickFiler running (I do) then the Filer starts deleting all the objects that just happened to be within the bounds of the rubber banding!!
Thats just one of many potentially catastrophic scenarios.

What we need is the mouse clicks and keypresses blocked for a few milliseconds on the Alt-Return.
