Note that this new virt-manager exposes a memory leak in the augeas 
library (used by the netcf library, which libvirt uses for the  host 
interface config APIs). After several hours of an open host connection 
in virt-manager, libvirt's memory footprint grows to several hundred MB.

The cause of the leak has been found, and a patch submitted, but if 
anyone wants to avoid this leak in the interim, you can get the augeas 
source from:

   git clone git://git.fedorahosted.org/git/augeas.git

and apply the attached patch.
