The Ubuntu Launchpad bug 251055 linked here is not the same as this bug, but apparently you can't remove bug watches without special permissions.

To get rid of the menu bar we need a proper fullscreen mode like vinagre has. We could try porting the autoshelf widget that they use to python, but just an idea.

Upstream virt-manager now has a hiding fullscreen bar like vinagre.
