Libvirt will chown the image to qemu:qemu if you don't disable relabelling. This is possible to do via the <seclabel> even in a snapshot <disk> definition. Note that it's not documented yet and also does not conform to the schema, but the parser happily parses it and the code uses the correct <seclabel> then. I have a not-sufficiently-tested patch that adds the schema (and IIRC also docs) which I planned to send after testing.
