This is to pass those key bindings to the guest, so the guest WM can handle them. Usually, a window manager will not handle bindings when a window has the grab, so you will have to leave the focus from the spice display to release the grab. If you are in fullscreen with virt-viewer, you can reach with the pointer the top auto-hide bar, and use your WM keybindings for example.

thanks for the explanation and pointing out where this is done!
Now at least I found I am not alone with this wish:

However, there is no generic solution yet, it seems.

I will try and see if Windows 7 is still usable in this mode.

If all else fails, maybe I can hack key_event() in spice-widget.c,
but probably that's beyond my skills as a low-level programmer. ;-)

Best regards,
Wolfgang
