I fear we're yet not thru this. Today I had a segfault doing a migration
using virsh migrate --verbose --live $guest qemu+ssh://$host/system.
This is with Friday's git HEAD.
The migration took very long (but succeeded except for the libvirt
crash) so there still seems to be a race lingering in the object
reference counting exposed by the --verbose option (getjobinfo?).

I am currently blocked with other work but if anyone has a theory that
I should verify let me know...
