I just upgraded to seabios-1.6.3 from koji, still no go. Do I need an even newer
one / build from git? If so what git repo should I use?

Sorry I've no time to investigate this further atm, too busy getting all
usbredir bits in place. Maybe I've some time in a week but I'm hoping someone
will have it fixed by then :)

Yes that is the commit I was using, well that + rebased chardev flow
control patches, but those even come close to touching the qxl code
Note I'm seeing this with Linux guests, and yes I've tried to upgrade
the xorg driver to a version with the async patches.
Thanks & Regards,
