OK, I'll wait for the fix and then I test.
In the mean time, even when fixed, this implies a shutdown of the VM....
Can the other kind of approach considered crash-consistent?

The one involving:
- VM disks are LVs of the host
- pause VM
- do an lvm snapshot of the LVs that compose the VM
- exit VM from pause state (unchek inside virt-manager gui)
- backup the snapshot LVs
