  I agree that the message is wrong. But the idea that you can't create a
temporary domain if there is one already defined with the same name or
UUID seems sound to me.

  Are you disagreeing with the message (which your patch doesn't fix)
or with the semantic of the check (and then why allow to create a domain
reusing the UUID of another defined but not running domain, I can only
see confusion or security problems in doing so)
