Dear all:

I found two defects of the virt-manager-0.8.4. When I add a remote connection through ssh, the OpenSSH dialogbox asked me to input the password. Then i want to find the password, but the dialogbox always capture the focus, I can't move the dialogbox or do anything else. I think this is a unfriendly design. Then I want to cancel the dialogbox, click the "Cancel" button, then the dialogbox will temporarily disappear and then appear.  Until I click the cancel button 3 times the dialogbox completely disappeared  and the virt-manager told me that the connection failed. I think this is also a unfriendly design.

I've been frustrated with this issue as well.
We don't have any control over the behavior of the SSH dialog, since it
is launched directly by the ssh client. So both these issues should be
raised with openssh.


Ahh, that's unfortunate. I wonder, is there any way to cause the virt-manager to store the entered password in the keyring? Or would that need to be handled by openssh as well?
