Package: libxml2
Version: 2.9.1+dfsg1-5
Severity: normal


This currently fails on Jessie (from the libvirt-clients package):

    $ virsh -c test:///default uri
    test:/default uri

while on Wheezy/Sid it correctly roundtrips the URI:

    $ virsh -c test:///default uri
    test:///default uri

The reason is that libvirt's virURIFormat invokes xmlSaveURI as shown

It'd be nice to have this fixed for Jessie since this also breaks
libvirt's testsuite.
