[libvirt] virsh [attach-detach]-device question



I have noticed a behavior I am hoping someone can help me understand. Consider the following scenario:

1.) Start a test dummy qemu-kvm instance with no OS via virsh named "no_os".

2.) Attach a device to it;
[root host ~]# virsh attach-device no_os /root/hotplug_device_b.xml
Device attached successfully

[root host ~]#

3.) Now detach the same device;
[root host ~]# virsh detach-device no_os /root/hotplug_device_b.xml
Device detached successfully

[root host ~]#

4.) Now re-attach the same device;
[root host ~]# virsh attach-device no_os /root/hotplug_device_b.xml
error: Failed to attach device from /root/hotplug_device_b.xml
error: internal error unable to execute QEMU command 'device_add': Duplicate ID 'virtio-disk1' for device

[root host ~]#

Is this expected behavior? If so, why does my detach-device call in step 3 appear to not free the device, leading to the duplicate ID error in step 4?

Libvirt XML's used:

/root/hotplug_device_b.xml:

<disk type='block' device='disk'>
<driver name='qemu' cache='none'/>
<source dev="/dev/syseng/hotplug_test_b"/>
<target dev="vdb" bus="virtio"/>
</disk>

I started the "no_os" instance with this:
