Actually I'm testing libvirt-0.10.2.1-2.fc18.x86_64 & libvirt from
git, and seeing roughly the same set of problems with both.  Didn't
try 1.0.0 at all.

To use libvirt from git, I'm doing:

  killall libvirtd lt-libvirtd
  ~/d/libvirt/run ./test-parallel 

Plus I should note a few things about my environment:

 - Fedora 18

 - 16 GB of RAM (if you don't have that, reduce NR_THREADS in the test)

 - baremetal with KVM on a very fast Intel Sandybridge
   (I doubt this is reproducible in a VM)

 - I've configured core_pattern and ulimit to capture coredumps in /tmp
