It is because, the authentication thread is independently waiting for the
password on virsh. I see that the virWatchJob interferes with authentication
thread and the password is never taken successfully. The virWatchJob
probably needs to wait till the authentication thread completes taking the
password after which it should start watching the job. Moreover, I see
that --p2p
migration doesnt work at all when auto login is not configured.
