[arch-general] Virtualbox under KDE plasma

I recently tried KDE plasma after 5.12 update and it is running smooth. 
However I am experiencing two problems with virtualbox.

1. Virtualbox applications do not start unless QT_QPA_PLATFORM is set to xcb. 
Under plasma wayland session it is set to wayland.

2. When a VM is launched, if it is maximized with Host-F, it loses all 
keyboard/mouse interaction and has to be killed from the plasma session.

Anybody has seen this? Should I report it upstream?

Package details
virtualbox 5.2.6-2
kde plasma 5.12.0
