This is fixed by https://www.redhat.com/archives/virt-tools-list/2013-August/msg00006.html , we should add this patch to the RHEL7 package

I can reproduce this issue in virt-viewer-0.5.6-4.el7.x86_64, no error message show when input wrong spice password.

I verified this issue with:

after input wrong password, which hint:
"Unable to authenticate with remote desktop server: invalid password".

So change the status from "ON_QA" to "VERIFIED"
