I can confirm the exact same issue.  As I change back and forth form a windows and OSX desktop logging into an XFCE desktop, the keyboard is always fine on the windows side, but not on the OSX.

Has anyone found a patch/solution/workaround for this that restores keyboard functionality in the currently open session?
