Yeah. Or the other possibility is that some API left the job set? Can
you attach gdb once the create API is issued and run "t a a bt" in it?
It should display all the libvirtd threads and what are they doing. That
way we can debug this. Although, I guess it's already fixed upstream
since 1.2.12 is very old.
