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
Win7 Client:
remote-viewer: 0.5.3
USB Clerk

Guest: RHEL 6.3 64

How reproducible:
I've seen it 3 or 4 times during testing (connecting to it around 50 times)

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
Password prompt

Expected results:
No password prompt, just have a display to the VM brought up.
