Ask a question about nova console

And new findings, I have to press ctrl key first then the vm can take the mouse event. After a while, vm does not take the mouse event any more.

If I want to use mouse, I need to press ctrl key again.

Another issue is that the caplock does not work either in the vm.

> So where does the issue likely hide ? Is there any option in nova configure file that relates to this issue ?
