If you restart virt-manager does the mouse work? How about connecting to the guest with virt-viewer?

Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2011-09-22 15:54:35 UTC
Also how about VNC graphics vs. spice? Any difference?

Comment 4 zhe peng 2011-09-23 03:13:23 UTC
I re-test this, found only windows vm with spice multihead can reproduce this bug,
when restart virt-manager, the mouse can worked, virt-viewer not have this issue.

Comment 5 Cole Robinson 2011-09-27 15:22:01 UTC
Hmm, well since spice multihead isn't even exposed in the UI yet and it shouldn't be a common setup, this bug isn't very high priority. Deferring to 6.3

Comment 7 Cole Robinson 2011-12-09 22:35:36 UTC
Not urgent, and given reduced capacity for virt-manager/virtinst, just moving
this to the upstream tracker.

Comment 8 Cole Robinson 2013-08-17 15:04:12 UTC
My guess is this is a windows qxl or qemu issue. If anyone can still reproduce with latest versions of those I'd suggest filing a bug there.
