Tis means the libvirtd isn't running

And this obviously confirms it.

Due to libvirtd not running

Again same thing

Yeah its very odd that this is related. 

At least if you do  'service libvirtd stop' to clear the dead PID file,
and then 'service libvirtd start' it should hopefully be back to normal.
If it still crashes, then best to try running /usr/sbin/libvirtd
manually, or under gdb/valgrind and capture a trace


Once libvirtd is running you can disable virbr0 with

  virsh net-destroy default
  virsh net-autostart --disable default

which will stop 'virbr0' running / being created - its only required if
you want to use NAT, not for bridging
