Description of problem:
Staring two guests(or even more) separately with a serial log file,
only first starting guest exists all serial information in serial
log file.  

In addition, outputting serial information to terminal is the same 
error for multi-guest.

Comment 3 Jiri Denemark 2010-06-16 15:06:41 EDT
Hmm, works as expected for me. Could you attach the XML for the two guests that are not working for you?
Comment 4 Alex Jia 2010-06-16 23:19:36 EDT
Hi Jiri,
I renew check second guest, the second guest is missing console argument in the kernel command line, it works also for me, so it's not a bug.
