Can you please post ~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log, and a 'virsh dumpxml' of
the offending VM? Thanks.

TEST1 is the VM that was startable and now no longer will start.
I've tried undefining and redefining it as well, still will not start, same

virsh dumpxml TEST1

Okay, I'm not sure what caused this problem to take place, but it isn't virt-manager's fault.

That 'bind' error is what you get when 2 vms try to use the same vnc port. This means you either have misconfigured vms, or something went wrong at the libvirt level. If you have multiple VMs configured to use the same vnc port, I'd recommend changing them. If not, this is probably the result of a libvirt crash or some other bug long fixed.

If you can still reproduce this issue, reopen this bug, and post:

virt-manager and libvirt version
virsh list --all
virsh dumpxml for all vms
ps axwww | grep qemu

Closing as WORKSFORME.
