I think we will have to see the XML your passing before and after edit to
figure out what's going wrong. Also, showing all the arguments you are
invoking the migration APIs with.

This could have to do with some back compatible stuff we do with <console>
handling: basically, <console type='pty'/> implies <serial type='pty'/> and
vice versa. So if one is available in the XML, libvirt will force add another.
If you clear out the <serial> bit, then pass that to libvirt, it will just
fill it in with the matching console details. So you might need to remove
<serial> and the matching <console> piece.
