Active FreeBSD terminal stops responding if using it in vmware workstation while connected to the host machine over remote desktop connection. Issue is intermittent and only occurs occasionally, however the issue is rather easy to reproduce.
vmware workstation 11.0 - .1 (upgraded to resolve issue, failed)
4 core intel xeon CPU
16 gb ram
128 mb ram (tried raising amount to 2 gb, no effect. top shows nominal memory usage)
Steps to reproduce:
Scenario: connect to a remote windows 2012 server running vmware workstation 11.1 with a freebsd VM.
while logged in (has occurred at log in terminal as well) press ctl + alt to release control from the VM and minimize the remote desktop connection session. Proceed to use other windows on the connected remote client computer that is connected to the server remotely. after maximizing the RDP session again attempt to click on the VM window to direct input into the FreeBSD virtual machine. The terminal should lock up and no longer respond to commands. It make take a few tries as this is a random occurrence. If I could give it a occurrence probability it would occur 3/10 of the times i tried to replicate it.
Expected Result: clicking back into the FreeBSD VM should of directed input to the vm and allowed the user to continue whatever they were doing and continue to provide screen refreshes.
Actual Result: System becomes unresponsive and does NOT refresh the ACTIVE terminal. I found pressing CTL + ALT + F1-7 allowed me to log into another terminal and log in to continue working.
Please let me know if you require more details and I do apologize if I missed something.
