Description of problem:
I cannot paste image to Libreoffice in Windows guest when copying from Windows client. Data stored in clipboard differs when compared to those copied from RHEL client
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy an image in Windows client (ctrl+c)
2. Paste this (ctrl+v) to Libreoffice in Windows guest VM
nothing is pasted
image is pasted to libreoffice
* Image is pasted to libreoffice when copying from RHEL 7.5 client to Windows guest.
* Image is also pasted when copying from Windows 7 guest to RHEL 7.5 guest.
To examine deeper this problem I used InsideClipboard utility (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/inside_clipboard.html)
In attached screenshot one can see that clipboard data differs:
Top InsideClipboard utility window - copying image from RHEL7.5 client (feasible to paste into libreoffice)
Middle InsideClipboard utility window - copying image from Windows 7 client (impossible to paste into libreoffice)
Bottom InsideClipboard utility window - copying from within Win guest
from vdagent log after pasting:

This bug has not been marked as blocker for oVirt 4.3.0.
Since we are releasing it tomorrow, January 29th, this bug has been re-targeted to 4.3.1.
Got a pretty different result but probably I'm using different versions. On my VM (win7) copy from another VM (win10) virt-viewer is just storing the PNG image which is not that good for windows.
I cannot reproduce with the combination of software mentioned in the description
Checked all versions, it seems the problem is not present anymore. Reassigning to Radek
I can copy from Win10 client to Win10 guest libreoffice Drawing now. So closing this.
