Bug#935896: xfce4 fails to resize with SPICE viewer
Subject: xfce4 fails to resize with SPICE viewer
I upgraded from "jessie" to "stretch" and further on to "buster".
The system is running as a VM on a Linux KVM host (CentOS 7 with ) and uses XFCE4 as window manager.
SPICE  is installed on the VM.
Connection to the VM via SPICE with remote-viewer.exe  from a windows machine.
Screen resolution did change automatically in XFCE on "jessie" when resizing the viewer window.
Now this is broken in "buster" due to a change in spice-vdagent as stated here:  Spice-vdagent now just informs the window manager that a resolution change has taken place. XFCE4 ignores this notification and does _not_ resize.
Expectation: XFCE needs to be fixed. Otherwise XFCE4 can not be properly used with SPICE as it does not resize.
