Anybody who has problems accessing the graphical console of a VM and would
not mind creating an unprivileged user with access to an unimportant VM (if
that's possible in Proxmox), I would be able to try reproducing the issue
on my device as well.

Mind you, I don't know whether Proxmox allows mere mortals to access a web
console and only get access to their own VMs like oVirt!

Please let me know and send me credentials and server address if possible.

The conscious mind has only one thread of execution.
