[virt-tools-list] virt-manager: does not pick up all config changes

I don't think I want hotplugging. I want to change the vlan for a
particular device. I suppose in kvm speak this would mean changing the
host network device that a virtual network device is mapped to. All
while the guest is running. I guess this is not possible.

(Kind of like on a real switch, I change the native vlan for a port)

I am using Windows with Xming as my X server. If I start virt-manager
then interact with a guest using the VNC console, I can move my mouse
to the virt-manager window and try to do stuff. It doesn't let me do

Perhaps this is a bug with Xming? Should my mouse pointer not be stuck
inside the guest VNC console?
