Public bug reported:

Description:	Ubuntu 9.10
Release:	9.10
Codename:	karmic

libvirtd (libvirt) 0.7.0

/etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf contains the comment:

#  - sasl: use SASL infrastructure. The actual auth scheme is then
#          controlled from /etc/sasl2/libvirt.conf. For the TCP
#          socket only GSSAPI & DIGEST-MD5 mechanisms will be used.
#          For non-TCP or TLS sockets,  any scheme is allowed.

yet strace'ing libvirtd startup reveals that it's actually looking for
/etc/sasl/libvirt.conf, which is why sasl authentication is not working
. It should be reading /etc/sasl2/libvirt.conf.

Once /etc/sasl2 is symlinked to /etc/sasl, it still fails, but that's
another bug.
