Well, sorry, I don't really know what might've caused it, but it looks all kind
of OK from a libvirt standpoint, so my best guess would be something related to
the virtio graphics.  But the I saw you are turning off that VM, so I'm guessing
it happens even after starting the VM back, right?  Still, might be worth asking
on qemu mailing lists if nobody on this list will know.
