We could do this but I think there is a little bug in libguestfs
that we can easily fix.

Attached is a simple python test case that fails for me.
I believe that the kill_subprocess() is killing what it should
then guestfs_close() is getting run again because "del g" calls
obj.__del__() and that calls guestfs_close().

It this code there is a waitpid() without a check to see if the
pid is > 0.
(I'll reply to this email with a patch)

Can someone (with a libguestfs that builds) test this?
I have been having problems setting up a libguestfs that can build
else I'de test this my self.
