  Seems that virt-manager polls the status of the domain(s) in parallel
and somehow the processing of the (unrelated) 'info balloon' call
lead to some corruption of the monitor queue.
  I would guess that snapshot-create forgets to lock something around
the monitor leading to a corruption of the monitor message queue
handling. but analyzing precisely the bug is gonna be painful as for all
threaded debugging, maybe run with full trace enabled and wtach
carefully all the locking output for the 2 commands.
