This most likely means your regular 'qemu' binary is older than the
'kvm' qemu binary. libvirt has an assumption that 'qemu' and 'kvm'
are both based off the same base QEMU version. Since KVM is based off
0.9.0, you need to make sure your regular QEMU is also 0.9.0. If it
is older, say, 0.8.x then this is the kind of error you'd get. This
is because the VNC syntax for QEMU changed.
