FWIW, that error messages shows that QEMU has crashed / abnormally
terminated the libvirt monitor command. If you're lucky you can
find further info in /var/log/libvirt/qemu/$GUEST.log which might
indicate what the problem was. Otherwise you'd need to try and
capture a coredump to debug it further.
