Ah. I'd only run the define, which is enough to make
libvirtd fail when using qemu:///session.

Putting that test closer to the target code is good, so ACK,
assuming it passes "make distcheck".

However, part of my goal in running the qemu:///session server is to
get more coverage on the server side.  "make check" does very little
testing of libvirtd, currently.  So if you don't mind, I'll also add a
comparable test using qemu:///session and unix_sock_dir, so it doesn't
interfere with existing state.

Maybe you want to keep the extra disk and interface sections after all?
(the ones that you suggested I remove)
Better coverage?
