Product Version7.6.1810 
Summary0015787: Using Gnome , user cannot switch between screens/xterms and is locked in
DescriptionAnything above Linux 3.10.0-862.el7 is causing the system from a Gnome/desktop perspective to be unusable. This could be an X11 issue and is related specifically to the Mouse(any mouse) and the input or switching from screen to screen in blocked. Once in an app like Firefox , it will work fine, however you cannot get out of this to switch to say another xterm. This has gotten me on several systems and i have gone back to 3.10.0-862 in order to continue running (maybe there is a fix on the way). I have seen multiple distros reporting this strange behavior now, so it's not Centos7 specific.
Steps To ReproduceTry opening a few xterms and moving between them using mouse, its locked in.
TagsNo tags attached.

Are you running CentOS as a virtualbox guest? If so, that is a know issue caused by a kernel bug. Please see for more details.
