Sadly I think we don't have any log from the Qemu started by xencommons.
I've tried the same procedure under 4.6 and AFAICT it works fine, I've
been able to run pygrub against a qcow2 image without problems.

In order to get any error messages from Qemu, can you try to kill the
Qemu that runs on behalf of Dom0 (you can recognize it because it has
"-name dom0" on it's command line), then launch it without daemonizing
in order to catch any error messages:

# /path/to/qemu-system-i386 -xen-domid 0 -xen-attach -name dom0
-nographic -M xenpv -monitor /dev/null -serial /dev/null -parallel
/dev/null -pidfile /var/run/qemu-dom0.pid

Finally open a new console and try to launch the guest again.
