Hi, moving to python component because virt-manager itself cannot crash with SIGBUS. I'm not sure whether it's python issue or some of the others libraries like gtk+ or glib.
Can you get a core dump (or better, an ABRT report) from the crash?
Please see related bug:
Plenty of reports. My bug manager also posted automatically several core dumps.
According to the backtrace , the crash happens deep in a glib/GTK/GDK call, in a pygi_closure, so I think the pygobject experts have more luck debugging this.
If it turns out to be a Python bug or any Python-specific knowledge is needed, let me know.
