Originally, I used the bios that is included in the qemu from your git repository. I just tried it with the newest seabios version instead - no difference.

Windows is perfectly happy with the driver. It shows a "Red Hat QXL GPU" in PCI slot 2 with driver version 220.127.116.11. Unfortunately, it seems to think that the only resolution supported by this device is 640x480/16.
If I don't use the QXL win32 driver, It will show the exclamation mark but basically work in all modes (but of course with no performance improvements over the cirrus vga ...)

I know - I only wanted to point out that both issues do not only occur when the display is rendered via spice but also in the default SDL window, so I guess, the problem must be in the qemu qxl (or the win32 driver?).
As said, I use the sources recommended on spice-space.org including the qemu from there (git://git.freedesktop.org/git/spice/qemu), because I thought that this has been specifically adapted for spice. Should I rather use the newest "vanilla" qemu from qemu.org?
