Screenshot of Authentication Required Dialog
Description of problem:
There are times when connecting to a VM, the remote-viewer windows also brings up a dialog that states Authentication required, where Username is blank and prompts for a password. There is no password on the VM and closing the window and reconnecting to the console brings the display of the VM.
I have seen it be more reproducible by making a remote-viewer connection and closing it before the display is brought up and then trying to bring up the remote-viewer window again. But I have also seen it come up just connecting to it for the first time in a browser session.
*Tested on Win 7 64 client, I've seen it a occur 4 or 5 times. I also tested on a Win 7 32 bit client, but never saw it on that client.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEVM 3.1, si20
Guest: RHEL 6.3 64
I've seen it 3 or 4 times during testing (connecting to it around 50 times)
Steps to Reproduce:
No password prompt, just have a display to the VM brought up.
