XBMC in fullscreen has this issue as well. I suppose my issues are typically underneath the frontend, but I could see this being slightly problematic when trying to finagle the frontend settings in WMC, MB3, XBMC, etc, etc. I always allow it to send keyboard combinations, so alt+tab or the "win" key bring up the start menu or switch away from fullscreen to the desktop. Typically I'm trying to check something in the system tray, but as jbcain mentioned switching out of fullscreen works also. For me, that is a matter of pressing "\" in xbmc. I think the alt+enter (usually reserved for app switching) toggles fullscreen in WMC. There's also win+enter which does the flip3d animated app switching. If all fail, you can send "ctrl+alt+del" from the teamviewer menu then your screen should definitely show up. However, I have to brag that I've not had to remotely troubleshoot my frontend in over a year. The two times I've used this for ondemand troubleshooting of XBMC (demand being from the wife) were cases were XBMC had locked up and forced closed but kept alive in task manager. Teamviewer->task manager->end task for XBMC->wait 5 seconds->launch XBMC
Try using the windowed shortcut, and better use something like "media only mode" in settings and Patchou's MCThemer to hide any unnecessary, possibly duplicate, or confusing menus from WMC
