libvirt-0.10.2-19.el6 is libvirt-0.10.2 with *many* bugfix patches
(handpicked from later libvirt releases) applied, as well as some
patches that are specific to RHEL only (and wouldn't make sense for a
non-RHEL distro).

You haven't said what OS you are running (aside from referencing a bug
report filed against a build of libvirt made for RHEL6.x). If you're
running RHEL, then you should open a support incident with Red Hat. If
you're running some other distro, you should find the most recent
pre-built package for that distro. If that doesn't help and you have to
build libvirt yourself, then rather than upgrading to some different old
version (1.0.5), you would probably do better to upgrade to the latest
release (1.1.2).

Another possibility I thought of was to checkout the v0.10.2-maint
branch from libvirt git and build that, but it unfortunately appears
that some patches that were backported from upstream master to the RHEL6
build haven't been backported to the upstream v0.10.2-maint branch (and
the series of patches that fix the bug in question are in the "not
backported" category). However, you could start with a checkout of that
branch, then add the patches for this bug - that would at least give
better results than starting with vanilla v0.10.2 release sources and
applying the patches.
