Hmm, I can't reproduce.

What guest OS is this?
If the guest is using a tablet pointer, does removing it make any difference?
Spice or VNC graphics? Can you test both?
Is it specific to the key combination you chose? How about something like ctrl+alt+s?
If you run virt-manager --debug and reproduce, any suspicious error messages?

Comment 3 Daisy Wu 2011-09-27 07:57:23 UTC
1. Guest OS: rhel5.7
2. Guest is not using a tablet pointer.
3. Only VNC graphics hit this issue, if remove the VNC graphics and add new Spice graphics, restart the guest, grab key (alt_R + ctrl_R) works well.
4. It isn't specific to the key combination I chose. "ctrl+alt+s" hit the same issue.
5. No suspicious error messages displayed by virt-manager --debug.

Comment 5 RHEL Program Management 2011-10-07 16:11:41 UTC
Since RHEL 6.2 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 6 Cole Robinson 2011-10-13 21:01:46 UTC
I think the issue here is that we don't change the keygrab combination for an existing VNC display. Not urgent for 6.2 though so deferring to 6.3

Comment 8 Cole Robinson 2011-12-09 22:19:52 UTC
Not urgent, and given reduced capacity for virt-manager/virtinst, just moving
this to the upstream tracker.
