Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 210364
^W in virt-manager console window closes the whole window
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:35 EST
Description of problem:
In a virt-manager guest console window, it is impossible to type "^W" to the
guest --- the accelerator gets swallowed by the virt-manager window itself,
closing the window. It really makes the console difficult to use if common
control sequences cannot be typed into it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
c-w and all other accelerators will now be passed through, provided the mouse is
over the console window (if it is not, accelerators will be picked up by the
local window manager as normal).
Patch is ready to go.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux release. Product Management has requested further review
of this request by Red Hat Engineering. This request is not yet committed for
inclusion in release.
QE ack for RHEL5.
The fix for this issue has been built into virt-manager-0.2.5-1.el5
