Yes, I've fixed this in the latest version so it prints out meaningful & 
helpful errors.

I don't know why this is necessary, since the remote driver is always 
supposed to be called first.  But anyway I added:

      if (!uri->scheme ||
          strcmp(uri->scheme, "qemu") ||
+        uri->server || /* remote driver should handle these */
          !uri->path) {
          return VIR_DRV_OPEN_DECLINED;
