with this stack trace:

We rebased libvirt in 5.6.  Can you retest to see if this behavior still exists?

Comment 2 Dave Allan 2011-02-01 02:11:25 UTC
We're going to need additional information in order to make progress on this BZ.

Comment 3 Dave Allan 2012-04-26 19:20:38 UTC
Closing as INSUFFICIENT DATA.
