Comment 1 Marc-Andre Lureau 2013-05-08 15:54:58 UTC
there has been a bit of back and forth, since there is no reliable way to know if a monitor is disabled by user settings or normally during reboot, we settled on keeping the display windows opened in bug 918997. Hence, the best way to remove a monitor is from virt-viewer display menu.

Comment 2 Marc-Andre Lureau 2013-05-10 17:31:09 UTC
the bug has been best described in 868970 before

reopening since rebase will improve behaviour

Comment 3 David Blechter 2013-05-10 19:42:27 UTC
As the result of re-base, the rhel client behavior will match the one in mingw-virt-viewer
