I almost hafve remote desktops working perfectly in a guest. I have two issues
to deal with, one/both of which may be easy to solve?

When I log into the guest from remote after first starting the guest so /tmp
is empty, KDE halts at initializing services and the connection
breaks,dropping out of guest memory as it should. I don't know what causes
this but if I first log in as root after a guest startup, it all works and
every user can log in properly afterward.. any clues why this happens?

It would be nice to figure this one out otherwise every time I restart the
guest, I have to remember to log in as root then log out. It all works for
users for as long as that guest remains running after root has logged in and
out. I'm at a loss where to look on this one.

My other issue which is a fairly major one, is that from within KDE I cannot
open any kind of terminal window, be it user / root shell, ssh shell,
nothing. Which tells me I need some kind of tty/pts definition that is
non-harmful. Any ideas there?

I have no user-defined capabilities of any kind given to the guest. It is
just as it was created.

Outside of these two things, it works perfectly and doesn't bother my primary
desktop running on the host at all:)
