rhel 6.4 differes a lot regarding multi-monitor handling, have you tried with r-v from rhel 6.3?
rhel 6.3 r-v works fine too.
fixed in mingw-virt-viewer-0.5.3-14 (spice-client-msi-3.1-6)
Interesting, I hit the bug again without any change to test setup. Maybe the fix was premature...

ok, please try to give as much details as possible. What is the guest OS, version, presence/version of agents & qxl driver. Can you reproduce with Linux. Is it 50% reproducible etc. thanks

the bug occurs neither in 6.4 nor 6.3 virt-viewer.
no pm ack for 3.2, revert devel ack to ?
Need to consider for 3.2.z
David, this is very likely a dup of bug 922283. Could you try with vdagent-win-0.1-16 ? thanks
with virt-viewer -23 and vdagent -16, the bug is a bit different: only the "connecting <...>" message is gone but the guest monitor in question is still unusable.
mingw-virt-viewer -24 works correctly at last.
"unusable" was that the monitor seemed to work from within the guest but the client showed just black canvas.
it sounds like the problem is not present in the latest build. Likely "under influence" of other bug fixes. Closed as CURRENTRELEASE
