Description of problem:
Unable to send ctrl-alt-del to a Windows guest while using spice-html5 console, thus it is impossible to login/unlock screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. spice-html5 setup with rhevm33, windows guest with windows guest tools
2. open spice-html5 console
could not send ctrl-alt-del monkey keystroke
there should be a way to send ctrl-alt-del so one can use windows with spice-html5
workaround exists: change to plugin console, send ctrl-alt-del, close the console and open again spice-html5 console

amos - how do we add that button? thanks.
In foreman the Ctrl-Alt-Del button is in the web page that host the console.
It is a simple button (link with some css decoration) that calls the js on click.
<a href="#" class="btn" onclick="sendCtrlAltDel()">Ctrl-Alt-Del</a>

Verified upstream in ovirt-engine-3.4.0-0.7.beta2.el6.noarch.
SPICE-HTML5 console contains now new button "Send Ctrl-Alt-Delete" at the bottom (see following screenshot), which emulates the Ctrl+Alt+Del keystroke at the guest side.
