CMD Key Remaping

    Im an old Windows dawg that, loves the new Intel Macs, but cant train myself new cmd/cntrl diff, so I have been maping on the mac side where i flip cmd and ctrl.

    This works fine on Mac alone and when I was running on 10.4 and builds 4560 & 5162, but now I'm on 10.5.1 leopard and betat 5580, when I start up mac and no parallels, cmd/ctrl are mapped fine, but when i start up parallels it remaps them back.

    The only way i can get it is to set the Mac to have both the cmd & ctrl keys set to cmd
    and to set Parallels to CMD+ZXCVAF in keyboard prefs, but if i leave Parallels at no remap of cmd key it overrides the Mac side

    Please make it so that the Parallels follows the cmd/ctrl key swap defined on Mac side

    Actually, there is more...

    i have parallels set to CMD+ZXCVAF in prefs and when i restart parallels it ignores this.
    I have to go in and switch it to another and then back to this before it listens to this.

    So here is the bug, if I set Mac to flip Cmd with Ctrl and I set Parallels to Not do anything with swapping CMD, then Ctrl should be Cmd on Mac side and Normal Ctrl on Windows side.
