Well, the initial assesment of that BZ was wrong. This should have been
fixed in virt manager at that point.

It does not kill any running domain, that's right. Defined domains still
vanish after that commit if they were defined before. That is still

Only when introducing a feature you are allowed to do a check that
rejects parsing XML, afterwards, no such thins should be added.

'33188c9f' is okay. Startup time checks can be added.

I still insist on reverting the code. This should be fixed in virt
manager as in libvirt it creates a vanishing VM problem.
