thanks, but go back to my first question. afais /etc/init.d/libvirtd
simple kill libvirtd, but virsh has a command save/restore. wouldn't be
it's much better to save guest's state on stop, restore on start in
stead of start if there is a saved state. i can send a patch to the
/etc/init.d/libvirtd, just would like to know is there any reason it's
not that way? anyway xendomains do it in the save way.
