another gdm glitch
I can reproduce it as well. Happens to me every time, because I'm not able to make the window a pixel-perfect match of the default VM size.
Please note that this is related to bug 1374028 - when wayland was used, the screen was flickering (bug 1266484) but not black. Now with xorg, it's black. According to bug 1266484 comment 47 this has been happening since Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-25-20160910.n.0.
Proposing as a blocker:
"All applications that can be launched using the standard graphical mechanism of a release-blocking desktop after a default installation of that desktop must start successfully and withstand a basic functionality test. "
This is easy to test, just launch gnome-boxes, make it maximized (to make sure it's resized, or resize it manually), and run Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-25-20160910.n.0 or newer (just booting a Live system is enough).
Discussed at 2016-09-19 blocker review meeting: .
This bug was accepted as Final blocker: Violates the following Blocker criteria: "All applications that can be launched using the standard graphical mechanism of a release-blocking desktop after a default installation of that desktop must start successfully and withstand a basic functionality test." We will see if there is any backlash from the maintainer after classification and go from there.
Bug 1374028 got resolved and this is no longer the default behavior - bug 1266484 is. I'll keep the tags as they are for the moment, but the accepted blocker is likely to get lifted if wayland stays the default in VMs.
Discussed during the 2016-10-24 blocker review meeting: 
The decision to reclassify this bug as a RejectedBlocker was made per comment 8; this does not seem to be affecting Boxes like it did before.
should be fixed in spice-gtk3-0.33
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
