I did some more research:

The original problem was introduced in commit 4e00b1d (libvirt 0.9.3),
when we switched over to new RPC handling; there, we only had one faulty
error path.  Later, commit 3ae0ab67 (libvirt 0.9.7) exacerbated the
problem, by adding two more faulty error paths.  Peter's test case when
originally reporting the CVE was on one of the error paths added in
0.9.7, hence his claim that "the problem was introduced in 0.9.7"; but I
still think it is possible to trigger the remaining faulty error path
when targeting libvirt 0.9.3, and agree with Cole's backport to the
v0.9.6-maint branch.
