In current state, we are not able to solve this in a reasonable way. Now we have alternatives, so /usr/libexec/spice-xpi-client points to 2 shell scripts, which run either spicec or remote-viewer. The problem is, that if I signal (by SIGTERM) spice-xpi-client, the client does not die -- caused by the structure of the script(s). The best solution could be: to signal a process group, where the parent is the mentioned spice-xpi-client.

Rhel 6.3 in current state suffers from a bug, where is is not able to signal a process group. I already filed that bug.

Moving to 6.4 for now:
First, it depend on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_activity.cgi?id=815674;
and second, spice devel is focusing on virt-vierwer as the spicec replacement.
