Just forgot to mention, the guest status will be 'aborted' after the segfault.

  • Summary changed from Segfault during 'screenshotpng' after 'savestate' to Segfault during 'screenshotpng' after 'savestate' => Fixed in SVN

Thanks for the report. This is just a missing parameter check. Taking screenshot from VMs with a saved state is not supported. The proper check will be added with the next maintenance release.
