Is it known to libvirt, who is user which is starting virtual machine? Can
libvirt change ownership of this pty back to user? Root do not need to be
owner of this file to access it, he can access any file, but user needs.

Another solution can be to change permissions on pty to 660, leave group to
tty or change it to a value defined in libvirtd.conf.

Is it possible?
