            Bug ID: 200368
           Summary: FreeBSD terminal stops responding to input
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.1-STABLE
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: misc

Active FreeBSD terminal stops responding if using it in vmware workstation
while connected to the host machine over remote desktop connection. Issue is
intermittent and only occurs occasionally, however the issue is rather easy to


vmware workstation 11.0 - .1 (upgraded to resolve issue, failed)
4 core intel xeon CPU
16 gb ram


1 core
128 mb ram (tried raising amount to 2 gb, no effect. top shows nominal memory

Steps to reproduce:

Scenario: connect to a remote windows 2012 server running vmware workstation
11.1 with a freebsd VM.

while logged in (has occurred at log in terminal as well) press ctl + alt to
release control from the VM and minimize the remote desktop connection session.
Proceed to use other windows on the connected remote client computer that is
connected to the server remotely. after maximizing the RDP session again
attempt to click on the VM window to direct input into the FreeBSD virtual
machine. The terminal should lock up and no longer respond to commands. It make
take a few tries as this is a random occurrence. If I could give it a
occurrence probability it would occur 3/10 of the times i tried to replicate

Expected Result: clicking back into the FreeBSD VM should of directed input to
the vm and allowed the user to continue whatever they were doing and continue
to provide screen refreshes.

Actual Result: System becomes unresponsive and does NOT refresh the ACTIVE
terminal. I found pressing CTL + ALT + F1-7 allowed me to log into another
terminal and log in to continue working.

Please let me know if you require more details and I do apologize if I missed
