linux-ZyvZnF:~ # virsh list --all
 Id    Name                           State
 -     redhat7;reboot                 shut off
 -     oscar-vm-5                     shut off

As shown above, 
1 we use command "virsh define a.xml" to define a guest with a name containing ';', that's 'redhat7;reboot'
2 then we start the guest: "virsh start redhat7;reboot"
3 shell consider the command as
  a) run "virsh start redhat7", failed
  b) run "reboot", to reboot the host
  And *the host get rebooted*.

shall libvirtd do the guest-name-validation work? Or other suggustions?
