Hi

First, I think the next composition.

               Client Machine
              +--------------+
              |  +--------+  |
              |  | VNC    |  |
              |  | Viewer |  |
              |  +--------+  |
              +-------|------+
                      |
  Management Machine  |
   +------------------|------------------+
   |             +--------+              |
   |             | VNC    |              |
   |             | Server |              |
   |             +--------+              |
   |                  |                  |
   |          +--------------+           |
   |          | virt-manager |           |
   |          +--------------+           |
   |                  |                  |
   |       +----------+----------+       |
   |       |          |          |       |
   |   +-------+  +-------+  +-------+   |
   |   |Virtual|  |Virtual|  |Virtual|   |
   |   |machine|  |machine|  |machine|   |
   |   +-------+  +-------+  +-------+   |
   |                                     |
   +-------------------------------------+

In this composition, when VNC Viewer of Client Machine can not send
Ctrl+Alt+Del the user cannot send Ctrl+Atl+Del to Virtual Machine.

However, when Virt-manager has the button which sends Ctrl+Alt+Del,
the user can send Ctrl+Alt+Del to Virtual Machine. (Even if the user
used any kind of VNC Viewer)

Therefore, I think that virt-manager has better have the button which
sends Ctrl+Alt+Del.


Thanks,
Masayuki Sunou.
