git bisect points to:

ec8e3b6cad170d08ac18b580792dfb137eb171dc is the first bad commit

    launch: Abstract attach method operations.
    g->attach_ops points to a structure which contains the
    operations supported by each attach method backend
    (ie. appliance, unix, etc.).

Obviously this change, which was supposed to be code motion,
broke things somewhere.

Fixed in libguestfs 1.19.39.
