That's now the 4th report I've seen from 3.2+ kernel users in other distros
that are seeing strange libvirt behavior. One user reported that downgrading
to 2.32 made the problems go away. So I think this is a kernel bug.

However fedora 16 doesn't have the same issue on 3.3 kernel, so maybe we have
a bug fix backported that other distros do not. See if the issue goes away
with an older kernel, and if so, file a bug with your distro and ask them to
take a look at the fedora kernel patch queue.
