Then that sounds like an independent bug - ctrl-C of libvirtd should be
able to cleanly kill a thread in qemuMonitorSend; but since you are less
likely to kill libvirtd, I think this second issue is not a show-stopper
to releasing 0.9.4.

I'll try to investigate it further, and opened this to remind me:
