mine seems older than yours.

ubu5% dpkg -l libvirt-bin
| Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name           Version      Architecture Description
ii  libvirt-bin    1.1.1-0ubunt amd64        programs for the libvirt library
ubu5% ls /etc/init.d|grep libvirt
ubu5% grep libvirt-guests /etc/init.d/*

if the latest version has libvirt-guests, the change looks ok to me.
