[virt-tools-list] Why virsh shutdown does not work?



Hi,

As you may have noticed, I'm writing some simple backup scripts to my KVM vms. Because my production server runs libvirt 0.7.5, I'm not able to use virsh save, there's some sort of bug that make the VM to not always shutdown.
So I do my backups shuting down the systems and then copying que raw image and the .xml file. To do so, I run "virsh shutdown VMname". For some reason, it doesn't works all the time, so my script currently waits 10 mintues to run "virsh destroy VMname", to be sure that the VM isn't running and then copy it's files.

Why "virsh shutdown" isn't working for me everytime? Is there any VM log where I can discover the reason? =]
Can "virsh destroy" damage VMs easily?

Thanks in advance,
