Description Lucas Meneghel Rodrigues 2009-09-17 21:39:14 UTC
Description of problem: virt-manager (using the default VNC driver for video) is failing to grab mouse pointer on VM windows.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Virt-manager version:


Other relevant package versions:


How reproducible: Allways

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to grab VM pointer by clicking inside a VM VNC display.
2. Window title will have "Press Ctrl+Alt to release pointer" appended to it.
3. Try to move the pointer outside of the VM window.
Actual results: Pointer gets out of the VM window, even though Ctrl+Alt was not pressed.

Expected results: Pointer should stay inside the application unless Ctrl+Alt is pressed.

Could you include ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log ?

Does it work with virt-viewer ?

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
