Just a matter of not reading in the right place (although admittedly the
man page could also mention this).

If the name of the mount point contains spaces these can be escaped as

Libvirt virtualization library

I tried this but it didn't work.
I made the necessary change and added an additional (non-space) case as a test.
The services were restarted.
The mount was performed and was successful.
The test case controls were active and verified that the modified exports file was in use.
The cases with the escaped \040 embedded spaces were not active, as even though I had
specified the noaccess option the directories were descended by the find command.
