I installed Kali Linux as Guest OS while the Host OS is Arch Linux. Whenever I go to Full-screen mode and return back to normal screen mode, the Mouse/Touchpad click is not working. I can move the cursor, but cannot click/tap or scroll through anything in both Guest OS (Kali) and Host OS (Arch).

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install Kali Linux as Guest and fully update the Guest OS.
2. Reboot the VM.
3. Switch to full screen mode with Host+F.
4. Again, switch to normal screen mode with Host+F.
Now, the mouse/touchpad stops working except moving the cursor in both Host(Arch) and Guest(Kali) OSs

This steps to reproduce fail rarely, but I can assure you it happens randomly each time when you stat up the VM and surf a bit.

When I shutdown my Guest(Kali) VM, then the mouse/touchpad operates normally as before.
