NACK, this is not going to help. 

The error message is coming from QEMU itself, unable to bind() to the
socket. THis code is in libvirtd attempting to connect() to the socket.
So this isn't where the bug is. In any case if permissions aren't
correct, retrying isn't going to magically make them work.
