That's not good. There should be no SIGCHLD's anywhere now - the container
double-forks into the background. Its probably some error in the cleanup
path - valgrind may help if gdb fails.

I've unfortunately still not got a  kernel build with all the neccessary
NET_NS bits added on. If you can capture an strace it can probably 
help me diagnose the problem

   strace -f -ff -o net.log -s 30000 -p `pid of libvirtd`

IIRC, you said removing the bit of code which closed all open file descriptor
would make it work again ?  If you can grab an strace with that change in 
too I can compare and figure out where we're going wrong.
