What I want to do: I am trying to remotely control another Windows 8 x64 computer using the latest version of TeamViewer on Ubuntu 13.10 x64. I installed the latest 32-bit version DEB of TeamViewer from the site (x64 didn't work on Ubuntu versions after 12.04 due to depending on the deprecated ia-lib32 package).

What happens instead: The press of some key (combinations) results in effects on both the host and the remote computer. (For example, the Super key activates both the Start screen on the remote and the Dash on the host.) I would rather have it like VirtualBox where you can choose to send short-cuts or key-presses only to either the host or the virtual computer.

What I've done: The Forward key combinations option is checked. The effect occurs even when I have been interacting with the remote session window without it having lost focus. I could not find anything relevant using Google.
