With newer X.org version it was impossible to lock the mouse in a windowed dosbox. This has been discussed on vogons.org[1] and was fixed in dosbox for Linux. I have verified that the same workaround fixes in FreeBSD. The attached patch enables the workaround for FreeBSD.

I looked through the patch and the Vogons topic, it looks good to me. It would be better if they fix this upstream but releases are sporadic enough that this is worth adding until that happens.
