Re: [Libvir] possible bug in virDomainLookupByID

I'm running as root.  My xend-config is attached.

In my case, the failure is with virDomainLookupByID.  For example, I get
the following output:

[root guinness examples]# ./test
(0) (null)
ERROR: Failed to find Domain 1
Failed on second try
[root guinness examples]#

I'm running xen 3.0.2-2, built from source.  My machine is running FC5
(32-bit).  When I tested the two libvirt versions, I build both directly
from source using the standard (./configure ; make ; make install).

Yes, XenAccess is a project that I'm working on to provide introspection
for Xen.  Currently, I use libvirt to obtain the kernel version of a
running domain, but may use it for more info in the future.  Details
available here:
