Description of problem:
I can't open SPICE console using RHEL5 client with RHEVM 3.4 (av10.3). The problem is:

1405932599 ERROR [2841:2841] main: unhandled exception: invalid action bname secure-attention

It seems spicec doesn't know about new "features" - secure-attention=ctrl+alt+del (which is visible in .vv file).

Well RHEL5 doesn't have newer virt-viewer which would contain remote-viewer thus only possible workaround is to unselect (disable) 'Map control-alt-del shortcut ot ctrl+alt+end' in RHEVM console options.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open spice console from RHEL5 client while having 'Map control-alt-del shortcut to ctrl+alt+del' enabled (which is default)

Actual results:
doesn't work

Expected results:
should work

Why is this bug opened to RHEL6? I suppose it is reproducible with rhel5 and rhel6, then we should open a duplicate.

Comment 3 Marc-Andre Lureau 2014-07-21 12:49:11 UTC
This should fix the issue (necessary on rhel5 only)

    Handle Application::set_hotkeys failure
    Application::set_hotkeys can throw an exception if it fails parsing
    the string describing the hotkeys to set. Currently this exception
    is uncaught which causes spicec to terminate when the controller
    tries to set invalid hotkeys. Fall back to using the default
    hotkeys when the controller sends an invalid hotkeys string.

Spice in rhel 5.x is not supported
