I see you're connecting to the system qemu instance. Does it make any

You obviously won't see any of the VMs in the system instance doing
that, but it just _might_ provide a clue as to where to look next if
that does work. Try creating a new VM that way if you don't have
anything handy, and check the output for anything that looks like a
corresponding socket location when you start it.

Also, have you tried using some other front-end, such as AQEMU,
