Hi all,
I think there could be a bug in libvirt passing MAC address to KVM.
If I have following in my xml config:
<interface type="bridge">
    <source bridge="br0"/>
         <mac address="00:16:3e:0d:24:00"/>

and start the domain (I'm using python binding btw), qemu is then executed with following parameter:

... -net nic,macaddr=00:16:3e:18:24:00,vlan=0 ...

MAC address given in config is not used by any other machine. Does somebody have a tip on where the problem could be?
I'm using libvirt-0.4.3.
Thanks in advance
