Hi all,

thanks so far for your time and ideas.

Please find the gdb output and also the debug-output of libvirt (as
requested by Michal Privoznik and Laine Stump) here:

Laine was already correct about that, this error message only appears
when I manually try to restart libvirt after it already hung up. Maybe I
should've made that more clear. Additionaly, no, there are no files in
that directory, also I am pretty sure that I only got one instance of
libvirt running

According to the GDB log, the libvirt process is endlessly iterating
over [1]. Any ideas what could be wrong?

Thanks in advance
