Description Tom Horsley 2010-09-20 20:01:22 EDT
Description of problem:

I finally got audio working to some extent in my continuing experiments
with spice and Windows XP KVM, but a few seconds into trying to replay
a randomly selected college football game on espn3.com, I see this
and my spice window disappears:

[tom@zooty ~]$ /usr/bin/spicec -h localhost -p 5930
Warning: failed to parse message channel 5 type 101

I tried to reconnect after filling in this much of this bug report
and got this:

[tom@zooty ~]$ /usr/bin/spicec -h localhost -p 5930
Warning: failed to connect: Connection refused (111)

doing a virsh list showed that the KVM virtual machine apparently
crashed as well.

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

How reproducible:
Seems random. I tried playing the same game again and it didn't
have the problem, in fact I've only seen it happen just the one time
so far.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot Windows XP virtual machine with libvirt using wrapper for
   fixing spice options and audio environment variable.
2. play with various things that generate sound
3. see the crash when trying to play wake forest versus stanford
   from espn3.com
Actual results:

Crashed spice and KVM

Expected results:

Normal playback of video and audio

Additional info:

The two lines at the end of the log entry are new and may be related
to the problem:

Comment 1 Tom Horsley 2011-04-14 05:26:56 EDT
After using spice for a long while now, this has only happened once, so it is obviously not easy to reproduce and maybe even fixed since I have gotten a few updates since reporting the problem.
Comment 2 Christophe Fergeau 2011-04-15 10:44:09 EDT
I'll mark it as fixed then, someone will report it again if this is just hard to reproduce and not fixed yet. If you're not ok with that approach, feel free to reopen the bug :)
