CTRL-[key] combo sent as Windows Logo-[key]

    I have been using Parallels 4.0 on my Macbook Pro, under Leopard (10.5.x), with Windows XP Guest OS installed. I have been using the Win XP Guest OS to run Remote Desktop Application to my Windows XP Pro box at work.

    This setup worked fine until this past weekend. Suddenly, my CTRL-[key] combos are translated into the Windows Logo-[key] combos instead of Windows CTRL-[key]. This is impeding my work as I can no longer do a CTRL-F to search a file - instead, Win XP's the Search (files) window pops up.

    How did this happen and how can I restore the previous functionality?
