  Unclear, he's using the prerelease code from monday, not the one
with the EACCES -> ENOENT replacement patch.

  One possibility for EACCES could be if the socket creation in qemu was
done with a mode not allowing access and modified in subsequent code,
allowing for a small windows where EACCES would be returned. Someone
should check qemu code.
  I think allowing again retry on EACCES should be fine anyway, I don't
see how that could break things, we would just hit a time out in the
worst case where access is never granted.

  So my take is to just do the enclosed patch,
