I'm a bit confused. How did you create the new virtual network: by hand
crafting XML and using virsh, or via the virt-manager wizard?

If you used virsh net-edit on an active network, the changes won't show
up in virt-manager (or via virsh net-dumpxml for that matter) until the
network has been shutdown. This is because libvirt does not know how to
alter running virtual networks, so the changes are applied once the
network is stopped (aka destroyed).

More questions the merrier!
