It should remove them automatically -- in fact it does for me.

You'll need to give us some more details about your system:

What operating system is this?

What version of libguestfs?

Did you use our binaries or compile it yourself?

Are you using the C API directly?

Do you get the same problem from guestfish or from libguestfs-test-tool?
