The problem is most likely the hal issue: we use hal in virt-manager to list usable bridge devices. If after some long period of time hal/dbus flakes out, virt-manager has no way to get the device listing.
Can you still reproduce this on rhel5.3?
it happens me with rhel5.3 too, machine was about 2 or 3 weeks running then lshal has same error like in Comment #6.
This really isn't a virt-manager bug, DBus+HAL are compulsory and if either is disabled, then things are guarenteed to not work. If DBus or HAL are crashing please open a bug against DBus / HAL.
Okay, reassigning to dbus.
