My bad, I figured dconn had the same URI on the dest host as it did on
the source host. ACK to this patch then.

Maybe for the future we should consider always building a manual migrate
URI in virsh.c (or maybe libvirt.c), using the destination connection
URI hostname. This is what we do in virt-manager, since it's really it
gives the closest guarantee for success.
