I'll take a look when I have some time. I haven't really pushed libvirt
as yet - as it still causes a lot more problems for some than it solves
- but it works perfectly well as a desktop virt thing.

I like to keep these requests in the bug tracker to keep it as a 'to do
list' as such. Can you file a request via:

That way when I sit down to look at it, the reminder is there.

It wouldn't surprise me if it was stuck using xm at that version. It was
pretty much a hack to make it work. Just about everyone should be
transitioning to using XL for all management these days - otherwise
you'll get a big shock when XM eventually stops working.

The good news is, for my current xen packages, the only step to move to
XL is 'chkconfig xend off' and reboot.
