Yes, due to a bug elsewhere in the code I ended up with an
LXC container in the / cgroup. When killing the container
libvirt recursively kills all processes in the container's
cgroup. When the cgroup is / this is all processes on the
host until it kills itself :-) I now have a 30 mile journey
to the colo to reboot this machine since I have no remote
power control on it :-)
