proposed placement of the shutdown button

Description of problem:
When viewing a running guest (virtual machine console) the buttons Run, Pause, Shutdown are placed to the left next to each other. The shutdown button is under the Send key menu item, which causes accidental press of the button when one is not careful enough.
Please move the button to the far right corner so it's not pressed incidentally. This will improve usability. (see attached image)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
any latest version of virt-manager

Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2009-11-11 10:35:34 EST
In current upstream, the 'shutdown' button is no longer beneath the 'send key' menu, so hopefully these accidents shouldn't happen. Unfortunately, pause is no beneath the send key menu, but it should be less harmful than shutdown. We still need a proper way to allow people to opt in for warnings before we pause/shutdown a VM, but that's a separate issue.

Closing as UPSTREAM.
