Failed to start VNC server on `': Failed to bind socket:
Address already in use

This error message is *highly* confusing.  '' in any other
software would mean it was trying to bind to, port 4105.  In
qemu's terms, it really means port 10005.  Why is this like this?

Is there any reason this can't just refer to the actual port it's trying
to bind?
For that matter, where did the "4105" come from?


We run multiple instances per machine, so we have to assign unique VNC ports to all of them. We pass this in (via libvirt), via the command line arg '-vnc'. The port number there is also confusing, but I realize it would not be backwards compatible to change how it behaves. It's not as confusing in the command line, because we rarely need to look at it.
