[xmonad] Virtual Box won't release keyboard or mouse when used in xmonad

VirtualBox and xmonad work fine here, I don't have any problem, even without
guest additions.
It's probably something in your virtualbox, have you tested with other wm's?
Do you have guest additions installed (on the guest)?
With additions the mouse can always leave the virtualbox normally.
And, as I expect, if you click inside the guest area, xmonad won't capture
But you can float vb window by clicking its boarders or bars (that are
outside guest area).
