Libvirt forgets to remove inactive vm when failed to start a defined vm.
That may result in residual domain in driver->domains on such condition:
during the process of starting a vm, undefine it, and qemu exit because
of some exception. As we undefined the vm successfully, the vm->persistent
was set to 0, we will always fail to undefine it until restart libvirtd.
