Description Milan Barta 2013-09-03 15:39:17 UTC
Description of problem:
When remote-viewer window is closed during copying of a large amount of data (e.g. contents of /usr/share/dict/words) from client to guest and reconnecting again, the copy-paste function stops working. Furthermore, clicking the left mouse button to call the context menu also no longer works.

Only restarting the vdagent service restores both functionalities. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Host/Client/Guest: RHEL 6.5 x86_64


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a RHEL 6.5 guest with vdagent running
2. Copy a large amount of text from client to guest
3. During the process, disconnect by closing the remote-viewer window
4. Reconnect (no text should be pasted in guest)
5. Try pasting some text to the guest or calling any context menu (by clicking the left mouse button)

Actual results:
The copy-paste function no longer works and context menu doesn't show up.

Expected results:
Copy-paste works after reconnection and calling context menus works as expected.
