Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch gnome-boxes.

Actual results:
No virtual machines are listed.

Expected results:
All existing virtual machines are listed.

Additional info:

After launching gnome-boxes from the console no VM being displayed, the following message appeared in the console:

    "(gnome-boxes:6059): Boxes-WARNING **: libvirt-broker.vala:117: Unable to open qemu+unix:///session: Cannot write data: Transport endpoint is not connected" .

After restarting gnome-boxes, the existing VM was displayed correctly, and no message was issued.

I've had this bug open against libvirt for a while: bug 1271183.
