I believe this essentially says that the container has shutdown.

Avoid doing this - libvirt will set that up as part of the container
bootstrapping processs.

Leave out the <source> here - that's auto-generated when the container
starts

Rather that going straight for a full OS, try just setting up a trivial
busybox root environment which just takes you intoa busybox shell.

eg, in /sbin/init just have

   #!/sbin/busybox

   sh

(Obviously install busybox in /sbin inside the root env too :-)
