Practically 100% guarnetteed. The libvirt version in RHEL-5.1 is only
tested to support upto Xen 3.1.x series. Xen is notorious for breaking
its ABI & API across releases & I know for a fact there are multiple
things broken between 3.1.x and 3.2.x Xen which impacts libvirt. So if
you upgrade RHEL5 to Xen 3.2 you almost certainly will need to update
to the latest libvirt release too
