I imagine that the second instance is unlink()ing the UNIX domain socket of
the first instance. It should really check the PID file and refuse to start
up if another instance is already running.

We ought to be able to make it reuse an existing session if that session
matches one of the defined libvirt pools. We shouuld also make the auto
shutdown behaviour configurable per storage pool. Currently we only
configure auto-startup.
