Bug Description

After installing Libvirt and Qemu, they create a user account "Libvirt Qemu" on the home page.

I don't understand how this happens. I don't get how this happens. It's cosmetically annoying, but I wonder if there are any implications of a system account being available/appearing as a normal user account.

$ grep -E 'libvirt|qemu' /etc/passwd
libvirt-qemu:x:64055:129:Libvirt Qemu,,,:/var/lib/libvirt:/bin/false
libvirt-dnsmasq:x:121:130:Libvirt Dnsmasq,,,:/var/lib/libvirt/dnsmasq:/bin/false

affects: launchpad → qemu-kvm (Ubuntu)
