The particular problem of having both localhost and your "local" hostname
(like linux72) resolve to should now work in libvirt 0.8.2 without
modification.  But the original reporter's problem is that after going through
the (rather delicate) algorithm to detect hostname, it still couldn't resolve
to anything other than localhost.  Either via /etc/hosts, or through DNS, the
hostname of the destination machine has to resolve to something besides
