Did you test this with migration V2 or migration V3?
I think what you describe is V2 (V3 now is different):

- Migration V2


 SRC HOST                         DST HOST
  |
  |- dump XML
  |
  |                               (PREPARE)
  +------------------------------>Start empty VM
  |
  |(PERFORM)
  |- migrate cmd to monitor
  |- kill VM
  |
  |                                (FINISH)
  +------------------------------->Start CPU


- Migration V3


 SRC HOST                         DST HOST
  |
  |(BEGIN)
  |- dumpxml
  |                              (PREPARE)
  +------------------------------>Start empty VM
  |
  |(PERFORM)
  |- migrate cmd to monitor
  |  (src CPU is now paused)
  |
  |                                (FINISH)
  +------------------------------->Start CPU
  |
  |(CONFIRM)
  |- if FINISH succeeded: Kill src VM
  |- if FINISH failed   : Run  src VM
