[fedora-virt] how to get rid of a hung VM install?

  as a test to warm up for a virt seminar i still plan on giving, i
tried to install f11 x86_64 inside of f11 x86_64.  i got as far as the
graphical fedora screen, at which point the install hung.  and now, i
can't get rid of that VM.

  since i figure i pooched the install anyway (probably should have
selected the basic video driver), i'm trying to simply delete any
traces of that VM, but i can't.  the VMM "Edit"'s dropdown menu has
the "Delete Virtual Machine" selection greyed out.  no matter what i
do, when i restart the VMM, there's my "f1164" VM, no matter how hard
i try to get rid of it.

  so what are my options?


p.s.  i did the above with no loaded HW extension modules, just to see
the effect.  not sure if that makes a difference.
