Re: [libvirt] PATCH] Stop double free

The stack trace is as follows:

I am trying to run libvirt-0.7.1-0.1.git3ef2e05.fc12.src.rpm on RHEL5.4.

vshDeinit gets called twice, so ctl->name is freed twice.

How about this patch then?

I don't think this patch is right.  vshDeinit() already has a check for
ctl->conn, and if you put it higher up in the call chain like this, you'll leak
the ctl->name memory and the ctrl->log_fd file descriptors.  Do you have a stack
trace with line numbers in it (i.e. debugging information)?  Also, what version
of libvirt are you using?  That might shed a bit more light on what the problem is.
