[virt-tools-list] virt-manager doesn't grab keyboard

I have a 64-bit CentOS/7 (build 1503), Intel processor w/kvm.
All YUM UPDATES done.
I'm new to this.
In trying to build several VMs using virt-manager, it'd most often give
me an empty, unbootable VM.
It would occasionally work, I've now got a couple Linux and one Win/7
VM, which work fine.
Occasionally I'd see an error that it failed to grab the keyboard
(when going from the real machine to the VM it was building, I'm
I don't see that error every time.
Which makes sense, when it interacts with me, it builds OK, using as my
source either an .iso I've downloaded from the net, or in the case of my
Win/7, I downloaded the DVD, renamed it, etc.
That is to say, everything looks fine, it tells me it's building a
CentOS or a Win machine, so I know it's finding and interpreting what
it's building from.
The last time I built a VM, intending to scrupulously record ANY anomaly
(generally there are none), it worked fine. I haven't had the
opportunity to build again.
I find nothing in the literature, forums, etc. relating to my issue.
What to do?
Is anyone else having this problem?
What can I do to capture information to help y'all resolve the issue?
