It is easy to reproduce. Suppose live guest xml looks like:

# virsh dumpxml vm1|grep disk -A 8
    <disk type='file' device='disk'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='qcow2'/>
      <source file='/var/lib/libvirt/images/raw.1430143276'/>
      <backingStore type='file' index='1'>
        <format type='raw'/>
        <source file='/var/lib/libvirt/images/raw.img'/>
        <backingStore/>
      </backingStore>
      <target dev='vda' bus='virtio'/>
      <alias name='virtio-disk0'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x03'
function='0x0'/>
    </disk>

Then try a shallow blockcommit of file has no backing file

# virsh blockcommit vm1 vda --top vda[1] --shallow
error: invalid argument: top '/var/lib/libvirt/images/raw.img' in chain
for 'vda' has no backing file

I also can do it.
But a shallow block copy of file which has backing file into a raw  file
does not make any sense, right?
