At last, found the trigger.  I can now reproduce this on uptodate fedora
16, using http://people.canonical.com/~serge/breaklibvirt.sh (run as root
from /home/$user).

The trigger is the qemu hook.  If I don't have a qemu hook, then I can do
100 runs of the parallel starts and lists with no failures.  But introduce
a slow hook, and the very first run always fails.
