Just to clarify, the file transfer process is a client <-> guest
message, that means that you could be having a problem in your
client machine and/or in the guest machine.

I recall reading that you had an agent not connected type of
error in the client, which means any feature needing the agent
would not work. I assume that this is been solved, otherwise you
wouldn't get arbitrary resolution working.

Could you please check what remote-viewer --spice-debug outputs
when you try to drag a file in the client machine?

At the same time, if you could have both logs from spice-vdagentd
(which receives spice client's messages) and spice-vdagent (which
is the one that copies the data to destination, that should
either be glib's G_USER_DIRECTORY_DESKTOP or
G_USER_DIRECTORY_DOWNLOAD), that would make it easy to pinpoint
the issue.

From the other threads, I see that you can run the agent's with
debug command line option. The only other thing that I'd mention
is that permissions/paths play their own role in making things
work, but the logs should point to the right direction.
