Thank you - this works! Specifically, starting an agent on the client
machine, and then running virt-manager under the agent avoids the
second prompt.

I still think that the failure of virt-manager to use the provided
keyfile for the console access should count as a bug: after all, if
I've provided a keyfile, the location of which virt-manager has stored
in its configuration, then why isn't it using it for console access? I
understand that I can get around this by using an agent, but why should
I have to?
