Summary0004614: 2018.1 - Copy/Paste & Drag/Drop Bug
DescriptionUnable to copy/paste or drag/drop from host machine to Kali. I originally had 2017.3 32-bit VM from this link: https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-linux-vm-vmware-virtualbox-hyperv-image-download/ and dist upgraded to 2018.1.

The first two commands check that vmblock is working right out of the box. Third command is to grab the PID of the process to kill in command four. Running command five creates PID 1580 and displays the Gtk-WARNING message. At this point copy/paste & drag/drop now works
