blocking virt manager ui
Description of problem:
- i have a remote hypervisor i'm trying to connect to
- it's a qemu/kvm hypervisor, i pick the ssh tunnel for connection, in the hostname field i put "root@thehostname"
- I hit connect
- over 60 seconds pass by my laptop's clock. The UI gets blocked up and virt-manager looks like it's crashed.
- it eventually comes back and connects to the remote hypervisor.

Hmm, was the remote machine over a VPN connection or some other slow link? Not seeing that kind of delay with a close proximity remote host.
Do you have a lot of VMs on the remote host? Does the app lock at all after connecting?
Hi Cole, I am in the Westford office as is the remote machine - it's in the lab here in the building. No VPN connection.
There are 4 or 5 VMs on the host, but 1 is shut-off. If the app doesn't completely lock up, it works fine after connecting.
The UI really shouldn't block, right?.... some kind of progress indicator would be good just so it's clear the app hasn't died.
Oh actually I might have lied. I may have been on the wireless VPN in the office.
