This is basically a libvirt bug that you have to solve separately.
I'm guessing that basic commands such as `virsh nodeinfo' also fail.

I don't know what the reason for that will be, but you can ask the
libvirt users list to help you fix it.

I believe it will work if you put this into root's .bash_profile or
.bashrc (ie. /root/.bash_profile).

Given the amount of trouble that libvirt causes us, it's a reasonable
feature request to add a tick box or something to allow the backend to
be adjustable from the GUI.  See the FAQ for how to file feature
requests.
