It's good that there's a bug but... opened over 5 years ago, no interest
from the devs, and last message posted over a year ago.

I'm also sad to see no support for SSH tunneling which is super-handy. 
Really it seems the only thing gnome-boxes is interested in WRT remote
desktop is SPICE; even their VNC support is pretty basic.


TBH I don't think we should be holding our breath on this :) :/.
