Hanging dnsmasq was either the case or it has been fixed in 0.8.4. I
sometimes suspect dnsmasq doesn't get restarted at all, although
libvirtd/network does.

Another "workaround" seems to be eg. range; at interface; leases This is
from ISC DHCPd where you have to provide leases for pool with static
(IP:MAC) hosts.
