Yeah, it is allowed to make VM transient during being started, but the problem

is that if the situation I described above occurs, we can't undefine that VM until

libvirtd restarted.

More details have been introduced in another thread [1], please review that piece :)

As discussed with John in that thread, I suppose a whole new patch instead of a

V2 version is better.

Thanks again :)
