snapshot of vm after login

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)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set scale display to "always"
2. start plain RHEL5.3 VM
3. log in
Actual results:
can't see whole desktop of VM

Expected results:
desktop of VM is scaled according to window size

Additional info:
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.
