First off, I'm not on the list, so copy me if I should see the replies... :)

I didn't see this solution posted, and this is what I suspect VMware does on 
the fly.  You can use the xmodmap(1) tool to remove the magic from the C-A-Fn 
combo. I use two files to work around this, .Xmodmap.norm and .Xmodmap.qemu  
All you have to do is run "xmodmap .Xmodmap.qemu" to disable vt-switch on the 
X server, and run "xmodmap .Xmodmap.norm"  Also the file .Xmodmap is the user 
defaults file and will be loaded when your X session starts.  Note that I 
have the magic for F12 always disabled, that's because I use Remote 
Administrator in WINE. :)

I don't know the details of xmodmap, but its functionality could be pulled in 
(or executed by) qemu...

Anyway, hope this removes one annoyance for the qemu users out there.
