Description Jens Petersen 2007-09-10 01:41:30 EDT
Description of problem:
Could the close window binding (Ctrl-W) but changed to Ctrl-Shift-W
at least (assuming it is from virt-manager) since it is pretty annoying
in a shell in the console to press Ctrl-W and <woof/> the console is gone.
I actually did this by accident several times before realising what was
going on...

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

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a console window
2. press Ctrl-w (with focus in gnome-terminal say)
Actual results:
2. virtual console window closed

Expected results:
2. Ctrl-w to go to guest desktop

Additional info:
I wasn't able to test this with f8 (rawhide) yet - so this may be a devel
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2007-09-27 17:31:07 EDT
Latest upstream code now blocks all window accelerator keys when using the console


Will pull into Fedora soon
Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2007-10-04 22:32:12 EDT
Now available in rawhide in virt-manager-0.5.2
