[Libvir] virsh define appears to succeed, but doesn't add bridge



While trying to test this tiny script on rawhide,
http://hg.et.redhat.com/virt/websites/ovirt-web--devel?f=e4f3ee8de5a1;file=ovirt-mod-xml.sh
I was surprised to see I couldn't provoke this failure:

    echo 1>&2 "$0: you seem to have already run this script"; exit 1; }

The idea is to dump xml, insert 4 lines describing a bridge,
and use virsh "define" to apply the new definition.
However, that last step doesn't seem to work, even though
virsh exits successfully.

If the new XML is somehow insufficient, the least it could
do is give a diagnostic.  Otherwise it has to honor the request.
