Virt-manager was running local on the host machine, but displaying
remotely to my desktop over a forwarded X connection. The ssh session
was from my desktop directly to the virtual machine (all the VMs
are setup using a bridge network). It is indeed weird. Other versions
of linux running in VMs configured pretty much the same way on the same
host don't have these problems. The same ubuntu 9.10 on real hardware
doesn't have the problem. Worse yet, I installed some ubuntu 9.10 virtual
machines at home on a very similar (but much less loaded) KVM setup
as I have at work, and they have never shown the problem. I guess
there are just some things man was not meant to know :-). I'll see
what happens when we install fedora 12 on the host after the official
release.
