Description Daniel Walsh 2009-10-28 11:58:57 EDT
Description of problem:

Probably caused by some library function call creating a .uml directory in the omedir.   I would really prefer that libvirt did not write to /root.

I attempted to set HOME in the init script but it did not have any effect.

Probably, I go blury eyed by everything I have seen.
