Description Bryan Christ 2008-07-10 21:34:36 UTC
Description of problem:

When using virtual graphical consoles after the pointer is grabbed
often the cursor is constrained away from one edges of the screen,
which is annoying.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible: often

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start virtual machine from virt-manager
2. click to stay in window
3. move cursor around
Actual results:

Usually some part (edge) of the screen can't be reached without moving
first to the opposite edge.

Additional info:

Moving the mouse really fast also seems to "break through" the artificial barrier.

This bug was noticed noticed and fixed in 2007 but appears to have resurfaced. 
The original BZ was 238825.

What gtk-vnc version ?

Please provide the guest config from 'virsh dumpxml NAME-OF-GUEST" & what OS is
installed in the guest ?

Comment 3 Bryan Christ 2008-07-11 14:45:43 UTC

I had one guest that was PC-BSD and the other WinXP.  I have already deleted
both guest images (due to another unrelated bug) but the problem surfaced even
during the install of both of these operating systems.

Comment 5 John Ruemker 2008-10-03 19:12:24 UTC
Problem still exists in rawhide


Comment 6 Cole Robinson 2009-02-15 21:57:33 UTC
Reassigning to gtk-vnc, my guess is this isn't virt-manager specific.
