virt-manager: VM does not scale to window size although scale->display is set to "always"

Description of problem:
virt-manager does not scale VM to window size correctly. I went to "preferences" and set graphical console scaling to "always". Start a plain RHEL5.3 VM. Scaling still works correctly (console messages show up, login screen looks fine too). After I log in it's not scaling correct anymore (can't see the bottom taskbar). Even changing window size does not help. (See screenshot)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set scale display to "always"
2. start plain RHEL5.3 VM
3. log in
can't see whole desktop of VM
desktop of VM is scaled according to window size
This is probably caused by low screen resolution. My display only supports 1024x768 while the RHEL5.3 in the VM has the same resolution by default (a guess).
Things look fine when I switch to fullscreen mode though.
Thanks, this sounds like a bug which is fixed by virt-manager-0.7.0-5.fc11 in updates-testing:
Please test out and add a +/- comment to the update
