Description of problem:
Must Press 'ctrl+alt' to capture the cursor for VNC graphical guest

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare a VNC guest without Tablet hardware.
2. Startup and login the guest's desktop.
3. Click the desktop and check the title of the guest is not changed.
4. Press "Alt+ctl".

Actual results:
After pressing "ctl+alt", the title of the guest window is changed to "Press Control_L+ALT_L to
relase pointer. xxxxx". And cursor is captured and cannot move out of the guest.

Expected results:
The cursor should be caputed by clicking the desktop of the guest in step 3.
And not captured by pressing "ctl+alt" in step4.

Additional info:
This doesn't occur on rhel7 host.

This is not a critical issue that will prevent users to use virt-manager. Closing as WANTFIX.
