Indeed that happens when the host root is mounted as the container
root... and that's what virt-sandbox-service does. We have this
situation when the libvirt-sandbox service has a disk image:
  * The disk image is mounted to /var/lib/libvirt/filesystems/<name>
  * Quite a few items from /var/lib/libvirt/filesystems/<name> are
    bind mounted to their equivalent in the container root, and /var is
    one of them.
