Strange.

Please see the attached shell script. Using it I'm able to trigger the issue on all of
my test machines.
run.sh creates six very minimal containers and enables autostart. Then it kills and restarts libvirtd.
After the script is done you'll see that only one or two veth devices are up.

On the over hand, if I start them manually using a command like this one:
for cfg in a b c d e f ; do /opt/libvirt/bin/virsh -c lxc:/// start test-$cfg ; done
All veths are always up.
