Clipboard sharing doesn't work in VMware Player 4 Unity mode

This post was originally published on this site

I’m using a Win7 host with Ubuntu 11.04 guest and clipboard sharing works fine when I’m running VMWare windowed but not when it’s in Unity mode. I have to drop out of Unity to get text copied in the guest to share with the host and vice versa. This was not a problem in 3.1 and I have replicated it in 4 on two separate machines.
