Description of problem:
There appears to be a bug in Spice that causes memory leak ( 4Mb/sec ). When the spicec process reaches 2G it is terminated causing the error seen in the browser.
Problem appears to be the fact that VM was configured as dual monitor but second monitor was off and "Extend Desktop to this monitor" was not checked.
When it is expanded and second monitor is used the memory leak stops and spice is stable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
spicec.exe version 188.8.131.5229
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create VM
2. Specify 2 monitors
3. Disable 1 and have desktop only on 1 monitor
Spice client memory consumption increase until the point that Windows terminates it.
Spicec should be stable and not leak memory in cases where 2 monitors are defined but only 1 active in VM.
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
