Well, I'm glad I'm not crazy.

ArchDevs, should I open a bug on this?

It seems the xorg update has linux guests within virtual box to not receive
left (and for some right) mouse inputs. Prior to this update the Arch guest in
virtualbox have been working fine for years.

Is there some additional, specific diagnostics I can provide that would help?
I'm a bit lost as to what to look for. I can log the output of xev if you like
and describe what didn't happen, but that seems a bit subjective. What would help?

David C. Rankin, J.D.,P.E.
