Stefan, you fixed this  in QEMU 24 Jan 2011 so this bug can be marked as
Fixed Released?

SEE: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2011-01/msg02425.html
Append ",removable=on" to a device definition for USB Mass Storage Devices to 
override the removable bit (but off by default):
> qemu -usb
>     -drive if=none,file=test.img,cache=none,id=disk0
>     -device usb-storage,drive=disk0,removable=on

However, I cannot see a way to set "removable=on" for usb-storage
devices started via libvirt (in 12.04, with libvirt-bin
0.9.8-2ubuntu17.1 and virt-manager 0.9.1-1ubuntu5.1).

So, is a feature request required for virt-manager to expose this option
for virtual disks (default to 'on' for bus='usb') and add support to
libvirt's XML to set "removable=on" ?
