Description Michal Nowak 2009-10-01 05:40:18 EDT
Description of problem:

When you have "localhost (QEMU)" ExpandBar expanded to see all the VMs, try to add new VM via "New VM" wizard. Then try to collapse the ExpandBar and the "New VM" window disappears immediately. 

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

virt-manager-0.8.0-6.fc12.noarch

How reproducible:

always

Expected results:

"New VM" window should stay where it is

It should indeed!

Nice bug, fully reproducible
Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2009-12-01 20:48:58 EST
This is actually an oooold 'feature'. Collapsing the row puts the connection into a 'paused' state that doesn't do any polling, but as a side effect you can't do anything with the connection, it just doesn't need to be reopened. So when the conn is paused, we attempt to hide all connection dependent windows.

Nowadays the benefit is dubious, not relevant for the majority of users anyways, and the behavior is certainly nonobvious. So I've removed it upstream:

This should be fixed in virt-manager-0.8.1-1.fc13 which will be in the next rawhide compose.
