I first wanted to write, how sub-optimal that is. How libvirt could at
least check, if the user made manual changes to that file. How this
feels like curtailing libvirt without the need to do so, as at the
moment no other tool apart from dnsmasq is used.

Then I contemplated a little, and had to change my opinon. Of course
things like that would be nice, but setting a forwarder in the xml
solves all/most of my problems, so I do not need to set the addn-hosts.

And, to state it clearly, thank all of you for libvirt. I love it. I
am so glad I discovered it, and also discovered that it runs that smooth.


P.S.: Sorry if this mail (or a similar mail) gets sent twice, sending
offline somehow triggered a bug in my SeaMonkey...
