Somehow your response is out of synch with the rest of the series -
things like this get lost very quickly.

Can you be a bit more specific. Do you mean during qemuConnectMonitor
processing during ProcessLaunch? Or perhaps Agent processing?

In any case, perhaps then the better fix is to prohibit undefine whilst
unlocked for Monitor or Agent start. The perhaps interesting question is
where to set flag. Setting/clearing just around Monitor/Agent startup
would be a seemingly short window and perhaps where you're seeing the
virObjectUnlock; however, I wonder if perhaps all of qemuProcessLaunch
should be "protected" as there's some really critical things happening
in there. Thus at the top one sets a boolean "obj->starting = true" and
at cleanup "obj->starting = false".

In qemuDomainUndefineFlags, there'd need to be a similar check to the if
(!persistent) along the lines of "if (starting)" then an error message
indicating that the domain is starting up and cannot be undefined.
Perhaps similarly for Destroy just to be safe.

I didn't think all that long about it, but hopefully it's enough to
perhaps have to generate more patches...  I don't believe with that it'd
be possible to have the need to qemuDomainRemoveInactive in the
CreateWithFlags, but I could be wrong.
