[libvirt] Screenshot



Hi,

Got my git/hg builds of libvirtd/virt-manager running together with kvm. Took some time but finally think I'm getting the
hang of it.

I noticed two things going from my pre-packaged Debian packages.

The older xml files I had seemed to generate a faulty kvm cmdline:
 
   <disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
      <target dev='hdc' bus='ide'/>
      <readonly/>
    </disk>

This seems to translate into a -drive file=,... The file argument for kvm may be empty but should then not be defined:
"If you don’t specify the "file=" argument, you define an empty drive". As a result the first vm I tried to start came back
with a message saying it could not open the diskfile.

Additionally, check below screenshot; the vm names appear to be missing. Here's the complete XML of one vm,
did anything change coming from this one?
