Can't click in VirtualBox menu bar in fullscreen mode

Hello guys.

I can't click in the Virtual Box menu bar when using the fullscreen mode. The bar appears when i move the mouse to the bottom of the screen but click on the menus is useless.

I'm using KDE interface in my Arch Linux.

Someone can help me?

Re: Can't click in VirtualBox menu bar in fullscreen mode

I suppose You are using version 5.1.20, because I had same problem.
Downgrading virtualbox to version 5.1.8-2 'solved' problem for me.
Notice that "virtualbox-host-modules-arch", if You use it, doesn't have to be downgraded. I tried, but it refuses due to kernel dependency. So I leaved version "virtualbox-host-modules-arch 5.1.20-1" installed, with vbox 5.1.8-2, and it works OK so far.

Got a(n autohiding?) plasma-panel on the bottom? What if you move that to the top edge?

Nope, my only plasma panel is fixed at the bottom. And in the top occurs the same.

I noticed this problem as well, is there any news about what creates this bug? It seems to be an arch only problem, since this is not happening when using the official repos from VirtualBox on Ubuntu (and deratives) Fedora, openSUSE etc.

Until now, nothing. This problem is very annoying.

xprop 2>1 | tee ~/weird.props
xwininfo 2>1 | tee ~/weird.info

Each time the cursor turns into a "+", click the malicious area and post ~/weird.* contents (in code tags, please)
