Description David Jaša 2012-10-18 09:49:19 EDT
Description of problem:
Disable client-side mouse acceleration temporarily when the pointer is in server mode and grabbed. Spice-gtk doesn't seem to do it and it causes weird pointer behaviour in server mode (from overly sensitive cursor when acceleration curves shape is smooth and similar to erratic behaviour).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure you have mouse speeds at highest possible levels in mouse properties and mouse acceleration enabled ("acceleration" slider at maximum value in gnome mouse properties, in Windows "Enhance pointer precision" checkbox)
2. make sure you have mouse in server mode
3. move mouse semi-quickly
Actual results:
mouse pointer will almost "jump" over whole guest desktop at any faster movement

Expected results:
mouse pointer should move in a guest just as it would move in a physical client

Additional info:
This could affect windows client as well
