That's a weird error - cat is complaining that it can't read stdin,
which is usually a symptom associated with SELinux permissions.  But you
said earlier in this thread that you aren't using SELinux.  Are you
using AppArmor?

At any rate, does upgrading to libvirt 0.9.0 improve the situation?
exec: migration has always been risky (there are various data races
involved in coordinating multiple processes, where qemu is using popen()
to manage the use or even opening the file), and so newer libvirt uses
fd: migration (where the fd is already open, so we don't even have to
worry about permissions from qemu's point of view).
