Package: virt-manager
Version: 0.5.4-4
Severity: important

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
I am using Virt-manager to manage some KVM virtual machines. The Virt-manager 
is installed on the host machine and I use it on a Fluxbox desktop trough a 
TightVNC session. 

When I am typing for example "azerty" on a virtual host (the virtual host is 
configured for qwerty keyboards it's normal) trough the TightVNC session I 
get "q*gvn" instead of "qwerty". The direction keys, enter, delete, backspace 
are not working too. 

But if I use Virt-manager directly an a Xorg session it works great. I tried 
to use vnc4server instead of tightvncserver but I got some display problems 
with virtual hosts. 

I tested the new packaged Virt-manager 0.6.0 and same problem with old VM... 
but if I delete and recreate the VNC display settings for the VM it works 
great ! So it's OK for new VMs created with Virt-manager 0.6.0, the problem 
seems to be in the display settings code of the Virt-manager 0.5.4... 

After, I downgraded Virt-manager to 0.5.4, the VMs created (or modified) with 
Virt-manager 0.6.0 were working great, but the problem comes back with new 
VMs created with Virt-manager 0.5.4...
