Memory Leak

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create VM
2. Specify 2 monitors
3. Disable 1 and have desktop only on 1 monitor
Actual results:
Spice client memory consumption increase until the point that Windows terminates it.

Expected results:
Spicec should be stable and not leak memory in cases where 2 monitors are defined but only 1 active in VM.
