Mouse cursor rarely works on KVM Whonix WS 14.0.1.3.8
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

I'm connecting to VM with just virt-viewer (not using virt-manager). There is a bug T872 with similar symptoms, stating that the problem was virtio mouse. I checked xml config - only ps2 mouse is present.
Versions:
Whonix 14.0.1.3.8 (fresh install, not an upgrade from previous version)
virt-viewer 7.0
libvirt 5.0.0
qemu 3.1.0
host kernel 4.20.7
Steps to reproduce:
a) Boot Whonix Workstation VM with virsh (virsh start Whonix-Workstation)
b) Connect to VM with virt-viewer. One of the following then happens:

  1. VM's display is completely unresponsive to mouse cursor. Restarting virt-viewer doesn't help at all.
  2. It is possible to click on start menu button then press Esc to hide start menu. Then VM's display becomes completely unresponsive to mouse cursor. Restarting virt-viewer doesn't help at all.
  3. VM's display behaves normally. This happens like 1 time out of 10 VM boots.
