Comment #3 on issue 447 by p.raderm... at gmail.com: installation breaks  
copy/paste feature of vmware-tools

I have set up Xmonad on VirtualBox. Guest OS is Arch linux 64 bits.

Copy/paste works fine. But after a while my terminal (urxvt) is getting  
strange garbage characters. Many times (ie after an error), the terminal  
output starts looking funny: all lines get extra indents. At that point, I  
have to restart a new terminal to get some sanity back.

Very annoying indeed. Working with Xmonad in Vbox is quite uncomfortable.

FY: Vbox (4.1.4). Host OS is Win7 64 bits. Latest xmonad version (0.9.2-2.1)

I have posted this issue here because this problem might still be related  
with a copy/paste issue somehow.
