I am not able to reproduce this. I tried both simulated USB keyboard in QEMU (i.e. -usb -usbdevice keyboard) and a bridged real one (i.e. -usb -usbdevice host:x.y).

Can you, please, provide some addition details? The whole QEMU command including all parameters, your QEMU version and some details of your USB keyboard would be extremely helpful. Thanks.

Running lsusb in Linux shall display information about connected USB devices. Detail about single device is best displayed with lsbusb -v -s BUS_NUMBER:DEVICE_NUMBER. Attaching the output from lsbusb -v could help us determine whether you are using some special keyboard that reveals a bug in one of our drivers.

It would be also helpful to see whether this problem is still present in current mainline. If you feel up to it, could you, please, compile latest mainline and try to reproduce it there? Thanks.

Also please make sure that the F10 key does not get actually "swallowed" by your host operating system. For example, there is a known bug in GTK+ 3.4.x and in GNOME 3.4.x which might cause such behaviour (the F10 key binds to opening the main menu or the context menu of any desktop window).

The most straightforward way to test this is to boot a different OS in QEMU (Linux, FreeDOS, you name it) where you know that the F10 key works.
