And the code loading the map ends up calling virXMLParseHelper() which
calls xmlCtxtReadFile. On failure it jumps to the 'error' label with the
following code:

    if (virGetLastErrorCode() == VIR_ERR_OK) {
        virGenericReportError(domcode, VIR_ERR_XML_ERROR,
                              _("failed to parse xml document '%s'"),
                              filename ? filename : "[inline data]");
    }

So it looks like the previous error was not cleared and thus the XML
parser does not raise it's own error.

The error then gets remembered forever in the virOnce infrastructure
which actually works as intended.

I'm not sure whether there's any sane reason for the XML parser to avoid
overwriting an error.
