  OMG ! You have no idea where it comes from ...
    I'm afraid it's related to

a global variable, used in libxslt, itself used in netcf, itself used by
libvirt ....

  There is probably a workaround possible at the netcf level forcing
locking when XSLT transformations are run to avoid the multithread issue
but the real fix should be in libxslt, I'm working on libxml2/libxslt
bug fixes this week and will try to get this fixed in the next libxslt
release, hopefully by next week ... I will keep you posted !
