We're all on holiday until Tuesday.  However my suggestion is to get
more debugging out of the server.  Is it possible to enable more
debugging on the server side by setting LIBGUESTFS_DEBUG=1 and/or
LIBGUESTFS_TRACE=1 ?

The 'pwrite_device: offset is negative' error looks quite serious and
will almost certainly be a bug in virt-p2v.
