Description Daniel Berrange 2009-02-26 13:11:34 EST
Description of problem:
The current GTK-VNC code has a couple of problems with the way it handles relative mouse mode in VNC described here

http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gtk-vnc-list/2009-February/msg00003.html

These cause an 'invisible wall' problem as per bug 223805

This is fixed upstream here:

http://git.gnome.org/cgit/gtk-vnc/commit/?id=85279b75576fcce7465754a8cc7b21cb6db5c355

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gtk-vnc-0.3.2-3.el5

How reproducible:
Difficult, but common

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a guest virtual machine for a while
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
At some point the mouse cursor will hit an invisible wall, preventing movement over some part of the guest console desktop

Expected results:
