Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
* Previously, when using virt-manager, virt-viewer, and spice-xpi applications, users were unable to enter the gnome-screensaver password after the screen saver started. This happened only when the VM system used the Compiz composting window manager. After users released the mouse cursor, then pressed a key to enter a password, the dialog did not accept any input. This happened due to incorrect assignment of window focus to applications that did not drop their keyboard grab. With this update, window focus is now properly assigned to the correct place, and attempts to enter the gnome-screensaver password no longer fail in the described scenario.
