Hi Michael,

About your VNC problems : I have had problems w/ vnc too (see
http://qemu-forum.ipi.fi/viewtopic.php?p=10468) but had no answer as

Anyway, it's better to do like you're doing : installing a VNC server
inside the vm is much better because you can have authentication and
such things... and no mouse / keyboard issues.

I'm using Qemu VNC server for the Qemu supervisor I'm developing (see
http://sourceforge.net/projects/casimir-web/ ) and it works very well
this way : ask qemu vnc to listen in a socket (-vnc
unix:/tmp//vmXXX.vnc) and use socat to make it listen on a tcp port when
you need it (socat TCP4-LISTEN:<port> UNIX-CONNECT:<socket>), socat will
die when the connexion closes, not Qemu :)
I don't know if it is because of the socat thing, but I don't have
problems anymore...
