 I've been playing around with virt-manager. Set up a single vm and enabled
 autostart, then rebooted the host to test it. It does work, but I can no
 longer use virt-manager. virt-viewer works, though.

22:17:04,529 (cli:71): virt-manager startup
2012-02-02 22:17:04,530 (virt-manager:292): Launched as: /usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py --debug --no-dbus

2012-02-02 22:17:04,662 (virt-manager:390): Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See http://projects.gnome.org/gconf/ for information. (Details -  1: Failed to get connection to session: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-5jSZbnyIwm: Connection refused)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py", line 383, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virt-manager.py", line 315, in main
    config = virtManager.config.vmmConfig(appname, appversion, glade_dir)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/config.py", line 96, in __init__
    self.conf.add_dir(self.conf_dir, gconf.CLIENT_PRELOAD_NONE)

 The /tmp dbus socket doesn't exist, but dbus-daemon is running.

 The only references to this problem I could find were old and unanswered
 posts to Fedora lists.
