The virInitialize() API calls does very little, it merely sets up a few
internal data structures.

There is no attempt to connect to libvirtd until you call viConnectOpen,
so I can't see how virInitialize would race with libvirtd autostart.

To get more information, you really need to capture a stack trace of
the crash in GDB (or via Abrt)
