I've now tested again with my not-just-the-laptop setup, and:
* in the guest OS (I tested with a Linux guest), PageUp/Down
work OK and work the same whether I use an external USB
keyboard with a physical PgUp/Down key or the MacBook Air's
keyboard with Fn+UpArrow/Fn+DownArrow as the chord to
* in the monitor window, neither way of inputting PageUp/Down
works: all you get is a ',' input into the monitor
So my conclusion is that we should fix the underlying
problem that the monitor isn't handling PgUp/PgDown
correctly (not sure exactly why that's not working yet).
If your particular OSX version really doesn't implement
the Fn+Up/Down == PageUp/Down chord then I think you should
address that at the OSX level, not in QEMU (there are
likely several OSX utilities that will do the job).
