Well, I would just close this as NOTABUG. Every operation will fail if you restart libvirtd before the operation is finished. If you restart httpd while trying to get an HTML page from it, you won't be surprised the page doesn't get to you, will you?

The same applies to the master bug filed for RHEL-6.

Restart of libvirtd during migration is not supported, so I'm closing this BZ as NOTABUG.
