Fix qemu autodetection at app startup
The proper way to do this would be to teach virt-manager to handle an a uri of 'None', which will defer to libvirt for this detection. Unfortunately, this change looks to be a wee bit involved, so I think it is safer to just try and look into /usr/libexec for the qemu-kvm binary, similar to how the existing detection works.
Built into virt-manager-0.6.1-6.el5. Setting to MODIFIED.
