Spice from Ubuntu with high latency.

Hi all,
I have some Proxmox clusters and have found issues with connection via spice to a few of them.
After investigation, it looks like Windows spice client works well. Ubuntu spice client works only with cluster latency less than 200ms.
It is 600-800 ms to a few clusters from me. Is it possible to fix and force Ubuntu spice to work with this latency?
This might also be about different spice versions running on the guests. Please update to the latest available packages, for guests and PVE nodes.
