This kind of thing points to disk "corruption" (ie. an inconsistent
snapshot of a file that the guest is writing to).  If the snapshot
isn't consistent you'd expect to see all kinds of strange errors --
the specifics don't matter, you'd just ignore the snapshot and move on
to the next.

"file receive cancelled by daemon" is a libguestfs bug because it
hides the true cause of the failure.  It's quite hard to construct a
test case that reliably reproduces the bug however.
