On a guest with multiple monitors, changing one display from fullscreen mode to windowed mode also affected all other displays. Now, full screen mode is left on the current display only, allowing greater flexibility in display placement.

Description Bill Sanford 2013-10-10 14:06:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Installed mingw-virt-viewer on the Windows 8 client, and edited the remote-viewer properties to have the Target executable just "remote-viewer" without having the "--full-screen=auto-conf" part of the command-line. Then launch the remote viewer icon from the Windows 8 desktop and input the URI:port of the VM I want to connect to.

When I get both displays in windowed mode, I then put them both in full-screen. Then I would go to one of the tabs that each full-screen has to exit full-screen and left-click it to exit that display to a windowed mode. Since the "--full-screen=auto-conf" is not used, this should exit the singular display to windowed mode leaving the other display still in full-screen. However, clicking the one "Exit Fullscreen" tab, brings the other full-screen display to a windowed screen.

Fixed by upstream

commit a8c71751cd4ae81bc12e3a81bfe1e7eb08ac41c9
    window: leave fullscreen on current window

    Since fdaa9b0ca, virt-viewer allows to fullscreen a single window. It
    feels more symetric to leave a single window from fullscreen as well,
    unless the application was started in fullscreen.
