Description of problem:
I'm using virt-manager on a fedora 12 desktop to manage a remote libvirt host using SSH.
Since I've upgraded virt-manager to version 0.8.4 (using this repo: http://jforbes.fedorapeople.org/virt-preview/f13/x86_64/), I cannot re-open a VNC console. The first time I open the VNC session for one guest, it's working fine, if I close the window, and try to re-open it, I have a black window.

The problem seems to be that virt-manager do not create the SSH tunnel anymore.

Attached is a snippet of my virt-manager log:

11:52:44: I open the VNC console for one guest. We can see the tunnel being created, everything works fine

11:53:04: I close the window. We can see that the number of window is decremented, then, we have a traceback

11:53:12: I try to re-open the VNC console, the window counter is incremented, but the tunnel is not created anymore. I just have a black window instead of the VNC session.

I have to restart virt-manager to be able to open the VNC console again.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

virt-manager 0.8.4 from http://jforbes.fedorapeople.org/virt-preview/f13/x86_64/

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a VNC session to a remote libvirt host using SSH
2. close the window
3. try to re-open the VNC session for the same guest
Actual results:
VNC session do not work

Expected results:
VNC session should work

Moving to rawhide where the fix needs to be built.

Thanks for the report, Next rawhide compose should contain and updated virt-manager which fixes this issue.
