IIRC, there is a way to send ctrl-alt to the guest. Also, there is an option
to use an alternative key combination to escape the guest (see qemu doc); I
think that it is ctrl-shift.

Goto monitor mode by "ctrl-alt-2"
In the monitor mode, use sendkey
"sendkey ctrl-alt-f1"
or
"sendkey ctrl-alt-f7"
or
"sendkey ctrl-alt-del"
go back to the guest system to activate the sendkey by "ctrl-alt-1"
