Additional info:

Comment 1 Jiri Denemark 2013-03-07 19:44:41 UTC
Libvirtd is just saying it got EOF on a socket. The only thing that
could perhaps be considered to be a bug is that libvirtd is a bit too
laud (warning could be enough) and reporting the EOF as EIO is a bit
confusing too.

Comment 2 Dave Allan 2013-06-03 14:22:04 UTC
IMO this is a supportability issue as I think these errors might be confusing to users.

Comment 7 Ján Tomko 2013-07-25 15:36:01 UTC
This error is caused by virt-viewer not cleaning up the callbacks and events when disconnecting.

I can reproduce this issue with:

Tested with:

After close virt-viewer,there is no such Input/output error info in libvirtd.log.So move the bug to VERIFIED.
