This is not relevant to block commit in any way.

It's hard to tell from this description. It's certainly not something
I've heard of. Both qemu-5.0 and qemu-4.2 allow libvirt to use -blockdev
way to configure disks where a lot changed compared to previous versions
but since those two versions both use blockdev it should work the same.

It kind of looks as a problem in qemu but can't tell more without debug

Please follow the steps here https://wiki.libvirt.org/page/DebugLogs and
reproduce the bug. I can then look at the log file and see whether I see
some anomalies.
