I have approximatively the same problem on Lucid server - alpha 3.

# virsh console guest1
Connected to domain guest1
Escape character is ^]
14:25:40.056: error : vshRunConsole:77 : unable to open tty /dev/pts/3 : No such file or directory

When I dump the configuration of my VM, something is wrong with the path
"/dev/pts/3" (there is a carriage return after the path).

# virsh dumpxml guest1
<domain type='kvm' id='2'>
 <serial type='pty'>
'/>   <source path='/dev/pts/3
      <target port='0'/>
'>  <console type='pty' tty='/dev/pts/3
'/>   <source path='/dev/pts/3
      <target port='0'/>

virsh console does not work (/dev/pts/1: Permission denied)
