Guests resumed during reboot lose their mouse input

Windows 7 guest domain xml file
Description of problem:
I have recently discovered that if you restart the host while the guest is running, the latter would be suspended and resumed by libvirt. The problem is, that the mouse will not work with the guest after such operation. It happens with both Fedora 17 and Windows 7 guests, both running spice-vdagent. I'm attaching the domain xml file of the windows guest for reference.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot the windows guest
2. restart the host
3. start virt-manager again and try to use the mouse with the guest
There is no mouse, no arrow even.
Mouse works as expected.
Rebooting the host is needed more that usual due to bug 787467.
I am experiencing the same problem on F16 with the following packages
libvirt built from git (essentially libvirt-0.9.11-rc2)
This only occurs on clients using spice, not on vnc clients.
Laine (or Julian), can we try and eliminate some variables?
- Same with a full updated guest? host?
- Can you reproduce using just save/restore (no host reboot?) So sudo virsh managedsave $vmname, sudo virsh start $vmname
- Does removing spice-vdagent from the guest and rebooting the guest make the issue go away after another save+restore?
- Does the spicec client have the same issue?
Cole, I have deleted my F17 guest since I upgraded the host. I still have the windows one and will happily test it. I just wanted to clarify: by removing the vdagent do you mean stopping the service, or removing it altogether?
Just stopping the service, and ensuring it doesn't auto start on reboot, should be fine.
I have just tried to reproduce this with F-17 host and it seems that the guest has not been suspended/resumed at all.
save/restore does not seem to trigger the issue, not on F-17 at least.
Clarification: I have rebooted the F-17 host and it seems that the Windows 7 guest was not saved/restored, just killed.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Since I haven't heard any other reports of this, just closing. If anyone can still reproduce on Fedora 18, please reopen and we can go from there.
