True, I believe you can do this on lucid if you run virt-manager locally
(i.e. on the lucid server). But, I believe the poster wanted to run
virt-manager remotely, like from a desktop.

I'm pretty sure that if your desktop is maverick and you run the maverick
virt-manager, then, you can get the desired functionality from the lucid
