"esx://IPADDRESS/ " <- There is a space after the last slash in the
URI, this may or may not be a problem, you should remove it.

The flags paramater can be 0, but auth must be a list with a
predefined set of items. See examples/python/esxlist.py for how to use
the openAuth() function correctly.

You see a segfault because Python bindings for the virConnectOpenAuth
function are missing proper type checking for parameters. I'll fix
this.

If you use the openAuth() function with the correct parameters you
won't get a segfault.
