So.. here's the issue. The vibr* interfaces for the private network in kvm gets
assigned an IP address. In my case it gets assigned the address

Well.. .that was the IP I was hoping to use for my gateway host... so this is
where the problem begins. I'm wondering why a private network bridge has to
have a default IP assigned by kvm at all? I tried editing out the ip address
definition from the private.xml file... but that made the interface
non-functional. Sigh...

Anyhow, the fix was to move the IP of my gateway guest.

Just in case anyone else finds this same issue...
