Confirmed, but the sev is really low IMHO.
Thanks for the report thou - those things are missed too easily and for too long.

Changed in virt-manager (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Low

This affects Debian as well and we should not take Delta for such a low prio issue.
I've created a PR for them to take which once merged will be picked up automatically on the next Ubuntu Release.

=> https://salsa.debian.org/libvirt-team/virt-manager/merge_requests/1

Unfortunately those can't be remote-tracked in LP yet :-/

FYI: This is in the 2.0 version that recently appeared in Debian and will be fixed by the next merge

This bug was fixed in the package virt-manager - 1:2.0.0-3ubuntu1

virt-manager (1:2.0.0-3ubuntu1) disco; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian unstable (LP: #1784424). Remaining changes:
    - Depend on gir1.2-appindicator3-0.1 for appindicator support.
    - d/p/mark-libvirt-lxc: Clearly mark the LXC connections as being
      libvirt-lxc, to avoid confusion due to differing features and
    - d/p/add_qemu_binaries.patch: add the actual binary name from the qemu
      packages so default hypervisor detection works properly on first run.
    - d/p/prefer-qemu.patch: Prefer QEMU as the default URI, even if it's
      not installed.
  * Dropped changes:
    - d/control: virtinst needs isoinfo to introspect images. To fix that
      add a dependency to genisoimage to virtinst (LP: 1763609)
      [accepted in Debian]
    - Merge with latest upstream stable release (LP: 1763618):
      - Fixes potential crash with libxml2 error callbacks
      - Fixes disk/net/mem VM graphs
      [part of upstream 2.0.0 release]
    - d/p/lp-1794315-connection-avoid-failing-on-NoneType.patch: fix a race
      (worse on slow remote connections) that would break connecting to a
      remote (LP: 1794315)
      [accepted upstream]
    - d/p/lp-1796932-tests-osdict-fix-ordering-issue-with-new-osinfo.patch:
      fix FTBFS due to self-tests failing with new osinfo (LP: 1796932)
      [accepted upstream]
    - d/p/virtinst/9006_fix_path_to_qemu-dm.patch: drop the full path from
      qemu-dm as already done for hvmloader and pygrub. The Xen tools will
      handle this and add the missing path.
      [no more needed as pygrub and hvmloader aren't hardcoded anymore]
    - d/rules: Set qemu user to libvirt-qemu so appropriate permissions get set.
      [now fetched as libvirt capability]
    - Add lsb-release to Build-Depends so we can detect whether we're running
      on Ubuntu or Debian.
      [no more needed]
    - d/rules: Set the preferred distro so we appear first in the list.
      [upstream dropped the option to prefer, due to the search based OS list]
