Description of problem: When I try to connect to a remote KVM virtual machine with SPICE, remote-viewer crashes after authentication with the following error:
*** glibc detected *** remote-viewer: double free or corruption (out): 0x0000000000d90f70 ***
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try to connect to a remote KVM virtual machine with SPICE
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to connect to a remote KVM virtual machine with spice
2. Authentication dialog appears and password is typed in
3. Program crashes
The program crashes
It should connect and provide a display to the remote VM.
Luckily, spicy is still working for me so I'm not stranded.
I was able to duplicate this bug on a different machine with the same install (Fedora 18 64bit) and package version. remote-viewer would connect and display properly until I enabled the password option at which point it would crash with the error previously mentioned.
