Can you give some exact steps to reproduce this, so that I know who is
making the file have non-zero size?  I'm worried that unlinking a
non-empty file is discarding data, so the commit message needs a lot
more details about how we are proving that the only way the file can be
non-zero size is because qemu happened to put data into a previously
empty file prior to the failed 'transaction' attempt.

That is, after re-reading context code just now, I'm fairly confident
that this code can only be reached when qemu supports the 'transaction'
monitor command, and libvirt's --reuse-ext flag was not specified, and
therefore libvirt must have just created the file.  But I want that in
the commit message rather than having to re-read the code every time I
visit this commit in future reads of the git log.  It may also be that
qemu has a bug in that the 'transaction' command is modifying files even
when it fails, so even while this works around the bug, I'm cc'ing Jeff
to see if qemu also needs a bug fix.
