Adding --full-screen=auto-conf option when connecting to a windows 7 guest with 2 monitors both on client and guest results in periodical flickering (configuration is periodically updated, even though there is no change)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a windows 7 VM with 2 qxl devices

it should not update the configuration so often

Tomas, isn't there an already fixed bug for RHEV/mingw-virt-viewer? Can you add dependency relation between them? thanks

Comment 6 Tomas Jamrisko 2013-05-09 15:50:50 UTC
I believe you mean this one, right? https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=952327

Adding it as dependency.

Comment 7 Marc-Andre Lureau 2013-05-09 16:07:55 UTC

Comment 13 tingting zheng 2013-07-08 03:12:49 UTC
Tested with:
# rpm -qa virt-viewer

# rpm -qa |grep spice

1. Setup a windows 7 VM with 2 qxl devices
2. Connect to it with --full-screen=auto-conf option

The displays don't flickek,guest can work well,so move the bug to VERIFIED.
