I'm using virt-manager 0.8.6 client side on Ubuntu 11.04.  I can't get vnc
over ssh to work to a kvm guest running on a Ubuntu 10.04 host.

kvmhost:~> virsh vncdisplay testing

kvmhost:~> telnet 5900
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
RFB 003.008

Client virt-manager debug:
2011-06-24 11:28:56,055 (console:923): Starting connect process for
proto=vnc trans=tcp connhost= connuser=pashdown connport=None
gaddr= gport=5900 gsocket=None
2011-06-24 11:28:56,120 (console:810): Viewer disconnected

I can reach the console with:
xtightvncviewer -via

Any suggestions are appreciated.
