I'm having a wired issue with my win 2003 server guest.
Instead of being captured my mouse just being "followed" by the Windows mouse, but with a significant distance.
This makes any reasonable tasks impossible to do.
Does anyone know how to solve this?

I see similar behavior with virt-manager under RHEL and CentOS. Don't use the VNC layered on top of Xen. Install RealVNC on the Windows 2003 Server, and use it directly with a standard VNC client, or use the built-in Terminal Server and a UNIX/Linux client instead as being far more efficient.

Getting the details of VNC right through the layers of abstraction and X translation and everything else is begging for confusion: I ran into such fun and games back when I did perhaps the first port of VNC to SunOS. Every layer adds potential for confusion.
