I have log_level = 1 in /usr/local/etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf.

Could be... I've been switching from qemu-kvm release 0.12.4 to git and back a 
couple of times, mostly because libvirt used to silently require support of 
the "-nodefconfig" option in qemu until a couple of commits ago...

Undefining and redefining the guest domains (without an explicit machine type) 
made it possible to start them again.
 
IMHO, though, the segfault is a separate issue, and still should not have 
happened.
