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?
Comment 4 Mauro Mozzarelli 2016-03-18 05:37:37 EDT
Please see related bug:

Plenty of reports. My bug manager also posted automatically several core dumps.
Comment 5 Petr Viktorin 2016-03-18 06:49:00 EDT
According to the backtrace [0], 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.
