Your problem is probably caused by a partly rewrite of libvirtd that
introduced a regression in the libvirtd.conf file handling. When
libvirtd is running as non-root it tries to read
$HOME/.libvirt/libvirtd.conf. Before 0.9.3 it was non-fatal if this
file wasn't there. In 0.9.3 this is fatal.

You can either touch $HOME/.libvirt/libvirtd.conf to avoid the problem
or apply this patches on top of 0.9.3 to fix it
