I have a client I am supporting. She runs Red Hat Linux as her host Operating System while running Windows XP clone on VMWARE.
When she opens MS Outlook on her Windows she get then application open multiple times without her input. If a mail should arrive, the mail will open several instances of itself without anybody prompting it. It will insert blank lines in the mails As if someone is pressing Enter key on the keyboard. Also the behaviour is so weird that when she tries closing the opened windows, the system will prompt her to save the files and when she clicks 'No' it will go on and safe the mails. This however doesn't happen all the time, but the frequency of occurence is very disturbing and unacceptable for a production environment. The error that pops up after this happens is 'Failed to start the grab state: stale data'.
Once thing I can say here is that there is some corruption somewhere. I don't know which side it could be. Could it on Linux or Vmware and how do I resolve it?
Can soemone be of help?
