On the VirtualPC list I received advice that the VPC manager is
capturing the Right-Alt as a "Host key" which has functions to move
mouse control back to the host operating system among others.
Advice was to change this host key mapping to Right-Ctrl or similar.
I thought that I should mention it also here for any future thread
