Since I was using the version from etch-backports
(http://packages.qa.debian.org/libv/libvirt.html) I don't think so.

I got it working now with libvirt 0.4.1 and both Xen 3.1.4-rc1 and
3.2.0, all self-compiled.

Perhaps I should rather have filed a bug at backports.org then...

The Debian package obviuosly doesn't have debugging-support compiled
in, so I don't get more output.
Don't know if this makes a difference, but ARCH is x86_64.

Thanks for your answer!

Kind regards,
