Woah, you are requesting the 'test' URI which should be 100%
client side, but for some reason it is trying to connect to
libvirtd. That is the primary bug here.

The secondary issue is why it takes 20 seconds to fail to
connect. I suspect that the 'libvirtd' binary in your
path is from an older release that uses $HOME/.libvirt/libvirt-sock
for the session daemon. So libvirt is repeatedly trying to
autospawn libvirtd but it never listens on the socket it
expects. In normal deployments thus should never be a problem,
but in test suite, we should already be setting $PATH to include
the locally built libvirtd first.
