Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1006200
Disconnecting during copy-paste causes copy-paste + context menu to stop working
Last modified: 2014-03-11 03:34:19 EDT
Cloning bug 1003977 for RHEL-7 since RHEL-7 is affected too.
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1003977 +++
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
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)
The copy-paste function no longer works and context menu doesn't show up.
Copy-paste works after reconnection and calling context menus works as expected.

Thanks for the bug-report. I've reproduced, debugged and wrote a fix for this.
This is fixed by this commit:
This is fixed in spice-vdagent-0.14.0-5.el7 moving to MODIFIED.
This has long been fixed, closing this with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE.
