Description Stephen Tweedie 2006-10-11 13:55:28 EDT
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):

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Hugh Brock 2006-10-18 15:27:11 EDT
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).
Comment 2 Brian Stein 2006-10-18 16:50:26 EDT
Patch is ready to go.
