Hi Christophe,

Thanks, your hint has helped:

After removing my 2 virtio ethernet cards, everything works nicely.

I've just removed "model=virtio" from my 2 "-net nic" options, and now
Win-XP works with spice and usb.

It seems, that the spice installation adds the virtio drivers at the
same time as the spice agent. That's why I thought it was a spice
problem. Sorry for the noise.

No. Thanks for the information, but I don't need it no more, because
-usb works now as expected.

Thanks for your efforts,
