Comment 3 Boris Derzhavets 2011-11-08 12:17:15 EST
However, VNC session running KDE seems to grub mouse pointer.
Problem is with Gnome 3 falling back to simplified 2xD desktop.
I didn't check LXDE yet
Comment 4 Boris Derzhavets 2011-11-10 03:32:49 EST
LXDE  VNC session grab mouse pointer properly
Comment 5 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2012-05-15 15:37:44 EDT
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 6 Fedora End Of Life 2013-01-16 10:08:52 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '16'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on 
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 7 Cole Robinson 2013-02-11 16:37:14 EST
Since F16 is EOL tomorrow, closing this as WONTFIX. If anyone can still reproduce on F18 with an F18 PV guest, please file a new bug and we can go from there.
