keys functions issue with VMware 6.5

Since I installed VMware 6.5 workstation on my Fedora 10 host, None of the following keys worked:
  • Arrow keys
  • Home
  • End
  • Page down/UP
  • Insert
  • Delete
Some keys didn't worked at all while others was mapped to wrong function (e.g. : arrow up opened the "save screenshot" dialog.

I have tried several solution (xorg.conf, evdev driver ) with no use, Till I found the following (simple) solution:

echo "xkeymap.nokeycodeMap = true" >> ~/.vmware/config

And thats it, No more keys issue :-)
