Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2013-04-03 14:06:31 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2013-05-23 11:00:11 EDT
I think this is working correctly in Fedora 18: pressing the "Win" key inside a virt-manager virtual machine window sends the key to that virtual machine.
