I think the problem actually lies in the qemuConnectMonitor()
call. This method calls  qemuMonitorSetCapabilities() and
if that fails it calls qemuMonitorClose().

The caller of qemuConnectMonitor() will see the error
code and also try to kill the QEMU process, by calling
qemuShutdownVMDaemon(), which calls qemuMonitorClose()
again.

So I think we need to remove the call to qemuMonitorClose()
from qemuConnectMonitor() and just let the calls cleanup
up via normal VM shutdown procedure.
