Logfile of remote-viewer spice:// --spice-debug |& tee /tmp/spice-gtk-bill.log

Description of problem:
When starting virt-viewer with multiple monitors, hovering the mouse over the virt-viewer View -> Displays while the VM initially starts, will result in the host system hanging. You *must* select the virt-viewer "View -> Displays" when the menu selection only has one display to choose from. When the display choice turns to grey, the whole system is non-responsive.

If I go to the shell and login as root and pkill the virt-viewer, everything is back to normal.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6.4-20130130.0 x86_64 Host
RHEL6.4-20130130.0 x86 Guest

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start VM.
2. In a terminal window, type remote-viewer spice://<ipaddress>?port=<ipport> and display the VM that is still booting.
3. In the virt-viewer window, select View and hover over the "Displays" selection.
Actual results:
Selection turns grey and system hangs.

Expected results:
Selection turns from Display1 to Display1-4 and system doesn't hang.

Additional info:

This could be a bug in GTK, but assigning to virt-viewer for now.
