Adding hosts to virt-manager in Ubuntu Intrepid

I have a nice ssh-key system setup for connecting to KVM hosts, and through permission settings on:


I managed access to the guests. Recently upgrading to intrepid brought along a new version of virt-manager, that whenever you add a QEMU+SSH libvirt instance in, it forcibly adds ‘root@’ to the URI where before the username was left out. If you add a URI like ‘bryanm@host’ it becomes ‘root@bryanm@host’.

Use gconf-editor, under apps -> virt-manager -> connections add new URI’s by hand rather than using the virt-manager interface as a workaround.
