The word 'Aborted' is the key there. We call the DBus library, but it
is hitting a fatal error during its initialization & aborting the entire
process. That's not something we can work around in virt-manager :-(

Really need to figure out why dbus isn't setup correctly on this 
machine. On Fedora systems that directory is created automatically by
the RPM install  

$ rpm -qf /var/lib/dbus/
