Comment 3 Marian Krcmarik 2012-03-20 07:18:03 EDT
This is not supported combination right now - qxl+vnc in kvm, see comment from Dor: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=717373#c2
Comment 4 Suzanne Yeghiayan 2012-03-21 16:16:55 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in the
current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Because the affected component is
not scheduled to be updated in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately
unable to address this request at this time.  It has been proposed for the next
release. If you would like it considered as an exception in the current
release, please ask your support representative.
Comment 5 Alon Levy 2012-07-23 15:28:18 EDT

 Does it happen if no qxl driver is loaded in the guest?

Comment 6 Uri Lublin 2012-07-24 04:32:49 EDT
Following Marian's comment 3 and bug 717373, since this qxl+vnc is not supported,
closing as wontfix
