Another option is to use input-linux:
I'm not sure how to use it with libvirt, though, I always use qemu from the
command line.

However, take into account that it does not work reliably until qemu
2.9.0-rc3 (I sent a patch to fix it that was included upstream on March
this year)

I have 2.7 so I'll keep an eye on this, thanks.

I've used it reliably since 2.7 though until the recent patch I had to add a virtio input device for keyboard and mouse in addition to the built in PS/2 device. Looking at the patch I guess that worked because virtio has much better buffering. I might keep it though as it's more likely to be immune to windows update and I swear that is out to get me.

Definitely the approach to recommend. No ctrl-alt-backspace getting redirected to your host X server or losing focus on the host to a dialog and so losing input. Beyond essential if you've got a single monitor or are using fullscreen applications such as games where the mouse needs it's own scale / boundary constraints.
