I saw you are using CentOS 7. I built the package with RHEL 7 (they are binary 
compatible). 
About the testing just which normal usage you should see improvements in 
bandwidth and 
reactivity. 

Changes from current CentOS package: 
- used a newer version, there are couple of changes that decrease latency; 
- additional patches to improve bandwidth usage (for small drawing this should 
decrease 
bandwidth usage by a 15-20%); 
- additional patch to decrease a bandwidth limitation due to a peculiar 
half-duplex usage 
of spice protocol (this is clearly visible with high latency connections); 
- additional patch to decrease packet fragmentation due to TCP_NODELAY usage. 

Alternatively would be helpful for us to get a local reproduction of the 
problem. 
OpenVPN configuration files would be helpful (we don't need any security 
detail like keys, ip, host or system names, just to understand the type of VPN, 
encryption parameters, compression, additional latency introduced and so on). 

The fact that you are not able to get a record from the guest means that the 
QXL 
(guest <-> server) protocol how the spice-server is handling guest command is 
fine. The fact that on the client you can see clearly such slowness is due to 
spice 
protocol, the connection/vpn, some spice-server implementation and possibly 
client implementation too. Unfortunately too much stuff to be able to point the 
finger to one of them. 
I tried some test and did this: 
- opened task manager on Windows 7; 
- switched to performance tab; 
- maximized task manager; 
- double clicked on CPU usage to get only CPU usage and history. 
When CPU usage change I can see the flickering on CPU usage but not on 
the history graphs. It this the kind of flickering you are noticing?
