[fedora-virt] Re: virt-inspector calling guestfs_umount_all() before launch()?

This is virt-inspector-1.0.34-1.3 on CentOS 5:

umount_all: guestfs_umount_all: call launch() before using this function at /usr/bin/virt-inspector line 375.
Running with LIBGUESTFS_DEBUG=1, it appears that this happened due to the guest trying to do ext3 journal recovery against a read-only image.

If telling libguestfs to run in read-only mode implied passing the -snapshot flag to qemu, and passing the snapshot=on option to each -drive, this should allow changes to be *temporarily* created (stored to unlinked copy-on-write files for the duration of the run), mooting issues of this kind.
