I've been contacting Robby, but since I haven't received any reply nor I 
see any correction in the git, I decided to come to the list, so you can 
take action before the next public update.

With version 4.6.0, libvirt has switched from yajl to Jansson.
Unfortunately, this switch comes with more problems than it solves:


I've actually experienced the bugs mentioned in the above threads.

libvirt team has already switched back for yajl for the next version.

What I propose is that you withdraw the 4.6.0 update.
Alternatively, you can update for version 4.5.0; the only change needed 
is changing back to yajl in REQUIRES and --with-yajl.

Hope this helps.

Best regards / Pozdrawiam,
