Unfortunately, I'm not seeing a local race:

        } else if (!priv->jobActive) {
            if (qemuDomainObjBeginJob(vm) < 0)
                goto cleanup;
            if (!virDomainObjIsActive(vm))
                err = 0;
            else {
                qemuDomainObjEnterMonitor(vm);
                err = qemuMonitorGetBalloonInfo(priv->mon, &balloon);
                qemuDomainObjExitMonitor(vm);
            }

That properly grabs the job lock, verifies that the vm is still active,
and then uses the monitor.  The only other thing I can think of is a
non-local race that I'm not seeing in the immediate vicinity; perhaps
one thread is able to see the vm object prior to another thread
finishing the creation of the monitor lock, so that querying the domain
info ends up calling pthread_mutex_lock on an invalid mutex?  But that
shouldn't be possible - object creation is also done under a lock, so
nothing should be able to see a partially initialized object.

Is this something you can easily repeat?  Can you reproduce it while a
debugger is attached, or have you been limited to post-mortem debugging
so far?  I'm a bit stumped on what to look for next.
