Hmm, this seems to be another issue, because the issue I was talking
about (`virsh -c vbox:///session' failing) already existed with libvirt
1.3.1-2 (and before IIRC).
But yes, I probably also see the issue you mention -- at least libvirt
1.3.2-1 behaves oddly here: at first I wasn't able to start a VM
(qemu:///system), and then (with no qemu:///session VM running),
virt-manager complained about
