Description of problem:

When opening the details of a  VM (which was sent to shut down from the guest os (F16 Beta)), I got the following message:


Error launching details: internal error cannot parse json {"ti"timest":amp": {"secon 1318621201862120micromicondcs":econds69316}, "evene": "SPIvenDISCONNECtED", "da":": { "erver"SP{"port": "5900"T "familyE: "ipD4",", "data27.0.0.1"}, "clien ": {"port{: "44692"port": "590ipv0", "hos, ": "12family".0"ipv4", .1ost": "}}}"127.0.0.1"}, "client": {"port": "44690", "family": "ipv4", "host": "127.0.0.1"}}}: lexical error: invalid string in json text.

Since we haven't had any more reports of this, and it was F16 beta, I'm assuming this was fixed.
