It happens every time for me... Do you have at least two vcpus in that
domU? With one vcpu it doesn't crash. The IP for ping I've used one in
backend domU, but it shouldn't matter.

Backend is 3.19.6 here. I don't see any changes there between rc1 and
rc4, so stayed with rc1. With 4.1-rc1 backend it also crashes for me.
