[libvirt] Synchronous commands block virsh?

I'm currently playing with libvirt on Ubuntu 9.10:

Compiled against library: libvir 0.7.0
Using library: libvir 0.7.0
Using API: QEMU 0.7.0
Running hypervisor: QEMU 0.11.0

I've noticed that if I open virsh on a host and set a live migration
going, then virsh doesn't return until the migration is complete.
However, if I open a second virsh command, it too blocks on commands
(e.g list), meaning that I can't perform any other operations against
other domains until the initial migration is complete.

Is this deliberate or accidental?  Is there any way round this?
