VMWare Full-Screen Display Oddities

Problem: In VMWare 6.x and 7.x I constantly run in to the problem where I set the VM to full screen mode and then have the cursor in the VM go completely bonkers – clicking anywhere in the VM causes the cursor to shoot to the upper left corner. Occasionally a number of items on the screen will get selected.

Solution (sort of): Toggle the VM to multiple-monitor mode, minimize VMWare, maximize it again, and finally switch back to single-monitor mode. It’s ugly, but it works.
