Good new.  That tells me that I did not configure something else
wrong, yet again.  What me screw things up! NEVER!  Perhaps.  :-)

My host monitor is 1680x1050.  I have been using 1440x900 in
my guests.  I would rather a wider guest, but I don't seem to
be having any problems getting my work done in the guests, so
it may not matter anyway.  And the smaller guest does make it
easier to flip back and forth to things in my host.

Also, I have to point out, as a refugee from Virtual Box, I am
so tickled with KVM/Spice actually working correctly that I
really enjoy using my guests.  I do a lot of *grinnin'*.  Okay,
the grinnin' will eventually wear off, but not any time soon.
Thank you guys!

No problem.  I am on EL 6.1 so I do not get access to spice-gtk until
EL 6.2 anyway.
