For some reason it is also trying to create /root/.kde directory and
then link a socket to /tmp/ksocket-root.

Everything seems to be caused by sound.

I hacked out a libvirt that does not add the -esound qualifier to qemu
and every thing works correctly in svirt with SELinux in enforcing mode.

Not really sure what the proper way to handle this?  Should libvirt be
execing qemu with the sound device if it is running as root?  Will this
work with the sound devices?  What happens if libvirt is remote?
