Stranger and stranger is that I cannot reproduce this with libvirt
from CVS, only with libvirt 0.4.1 in Fedora 8.

However there is no change in either src/hash.c or src/libvirt.c that
I can point to which could have fixed this.  So I don't know if this
bug has really been fixed or is just in hiding (evidence suggests that
the F8 problem is caused by memory corruption, so this is exactly the
sort of bug which might just disappear by a simple recompilation).
Valgrind doesn't see anything.

virt-p2v converts physical machines to virtual machines.  Boot with a
live CD or over the network (PXE) and turn machines into Xen guests.
