It could just as easily be a memory corruption bug in the ESX libvirt
driver, since that runs directly in the applicatin process as it is a
stateless client side driver.

We would probably need to have an small demo program that can reproduce
the problem in an isolated fashion, in order to try to debug it, along
with full libvirt debug logs.
