Bug Description

The monitor 'screendump' command returns stale data for VMs using qxl + spice. If you perform multiple screendumps, screendump #N will show roughly the display from the time screendump #N-1 was taken. This affects 'virsh screenshot' and libvirt screenshot APIs by association.

Gerd explains that new monitor commands/infrastructure is likely required to handle this correctly:

Looking through old bug tickets... can you still reproduce this issue with the latest version of QEMU? Or could we close this ticket nowadays?
