migrate w/o shared storage fails: error while loading state section id 2

F19 source and destination host (I'm using a VM for the destination but I don't think that matters).
Both hosts have qemu-1.4.2-1, which has the migration cleanup series from qemu-1.5 backported, including this commit which sounds like it could have been related:

I'm migrating with: sudo virsh migrate --p2p --tunnelled --verbose --live --copy-storage-all f19-migrate qemu+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/system
After progress meter reaches 99% the migration fails. This is in the destination qemu log:
Receiving block device images
qemu: warning: error while loading state section id 2
load of migration failed
Full qemu command line and logs coming up.

FWIW I was more or less following the steps here:
Can you try without --p2p and --tunnelled?
Yeah I think this was some side effect of libvirt silently falling back to the old storage migration method, which current F19 libvirt doesn't do anymore. Since we don't really care about that method, closing this as WONTFIX. I'll reopen if I can reproduce with the nbd migration method.
