[Libvir] xmldump doesn't work

I'm running libvirt from CVS. I'm unable to get xmldump to work:

o virsh dumpxml <domain-id> doesn't work. Neither does <domain-name>
instead of domain-id. (Aside: the documentation at
http://libvirt.org/format.html needs fixing -- virsh reports a dumpxml
command, but no xmldump command)

o I can't get an XML dump from the Python bindings either.

Looking at the code, it seems the XML description is built using the
sexpr output from xend. On my machine, "xm list -l <domain-id>" prints
out the correct sexpr, so it seems Xend is working fine.

Am I missing something?
