Ah, OK.  So then the question becomes whether the problem is in the ruby
bindings not releasing the object in certain circumstances, or in rails
holding onto the object too long.  Unfortunately I'm not really that familiar
with rails or passenger, so I'm not entirely sure how to figure out where the
problem is.

I'll see if I can do a bit of testing and look at object lifetimes from the
point-of-view of ruby-libvirt to try and eliminate that from the equation.
