I guess there's no way to workaround apps like VirtualBox because in install
drivers that prevents completaly the host to grab its keys.
Unless, of course, when it's configured to do so, like ctrl+alt+del and
But you can configure vb hotkey near or the same as your xmonad mod key, so
you can easily press them.
