Comment 1 Sergei LITVINENKO 2009-04-11 13:04:21 EDT
in original version kvm-84.tar.gz there is the same problem.
Comment 2 Mark McLoughlin 2009-04-19 06:26:17 EDT
Sergei: is this also reproducible if you do?

  $> qemu-kvm -localtime -hda centos-5.img -boot c -vnc localhost:0
  $> vncviewer localhost

if not, then the bug is specific to the SDL backend
Comment 3 Sergei LITVINENKO 2009-04-20 09:10:15 EDT
Bug is resolved after some updates. I do not found this problem in qemu-0.10-8.fc11. Current version of SDL is:

[root@homedesk download]# rpm -qa | grep SDL

PS: I think, this bug report should be closed
