With a RHEL 6 KVM guest containing:
<serial type='pty'> <target port='0'/> </serial> <serial type='file'> <source path='/tmp/rhel6-3-sparse-tst.log'/> <target port='1'/> </serial> <serial type='pty'> <target port='2'/> </serial> <console type='pty'> <target type='serial' port='0'/> </console>
On a RHEL 6.3 KVM host the error resembles something like the following:
