Regarding the user's point of view described above, I concur that a
switch would be a good compromise. However given that someone using
CVS head is likely to read the mailing list and all other users
upgrading should read the release notes, this option should be the
default or otherwise exactly those users the feature is targeted at
will not use the switch! It's also more frontend-friendly not needing
an additional switch for mainstream users.

Agreed. This bug is critical in both senses - from developer's point
of view - that's a crash - something should be prevented at all costs,
and from user point of view, where user should not need to run after
the crash/exception number and read tons of logs to understand why
Qemu crash or his guest crashed.

As Adam wrote, other virtualization vendors already provide a fix for
such a situation, so why re-invert the wheel ? Let's just follow them,
and pause the VM, with displaying a warning message to the user.
