  oh, right copying over uninitialized data

  Okay i see the patch, and applying it makes things work as expected:

wei:~/libvirt-java/src -> java -classpath .:/usr/share/java/libvirt-0.2.0.jar test
exception caught:org.libvirt.LibvirtException: Connection refused
message:Connection refused
str2:Connection refused


Now I have to understand why test+tcp URL are not accepted but it's not a 
java binding issue, oh and find the double free you reported yesterday !

  I'm commiting the fix, I just re-added the cast to jlong as we got a warning
otherwise, some of those jlong/pointer/int casts are fishy but as you say
1.0 is a long way :-)

  in the meantime, enjoy your vacations !

   thanks again,
