No where in your code do you ever invoke eventRemoveCallback.
When the stream is "aborted" this just means that libvirtd
has released server side resource & reported the error back
to the client. You still have to remove your event callbacks
otherwise you'll just be invoked forever. See tools/console.c
for example code doing what you're attempting, but in C.
In particular the places which call virConsoleShutdown.
Your code in Python should  basically be a straight conversion
of tools/console.c from C into Python.
