Thanks for the report, I reproduced. Indeed we aren't using lxml, but
virtinst is setting a libxml2 error callback of its own which appears to
be the culprit, disabling it avoids the crash but results in libxml2
spewing warnings on the console. It's been there for a while so I'm
surprised this hasn't come up before... I'll just drop it

Thanks,
Cole
