This check is wrong. You meant to check for !(vboxDomainCreate(dom) <
0) but resolved the ! incorrectly.

Either change it to

    if (vboxDomainCreate(dom) >= 0)
        return dom;

or keep the negative check

    if (vboxDomainCreate(dom) < 0) {
        vboxDomainUndefine(dom);
        return NULL;
    }

    return dom;

I prefer the second version.

The original code also contains a domain pointer reference leak.
vboxDomainUndefine does not unref the domain pointer, so there is a
virUnrefDomain call missing in the error case. So this could be
changed to

    if (vboxDomainCreate(dom) < 0) {
        vboxDomainUndefine(dom);
        virUnrefDomain(dom);
        return NULL;
    }

    return dom;

But I think this is worth a separate commit.
