Note that my original post was to ovirt-users mailing list. See here for it:
(see what I got in /var/log/messages output there)

Tomas then forwarded to spice-devel too at a certain point.
So the doc links  I referred were:

I'm going to search for them to get more info on this, thanks

I'm going to test what you suggested and report
The test was made from fedora 19 in firefox browser and with spice-xpi
installed, against oVirt 3.3.2 beta (based on f19 too and ovirt-beta
In VM I had set "auto" for spice, so I think it should use virt-viewer
as it did, correct?
And I also have pre-marked the Spice-Proxy checkbox (inherited by
global config set)
Does Spice Proxy work with both the plugin and the native
remote-viewer or only with the latter?
