Heh, we're getting '-1' in all the paths here. Presumably this is because in
the test suite we've not bothered to set the 'id' field to any value.

I can't help thinking that virDomainObjGetShortName ought to return a fatal
error if 'id' is still -1, as in non-test suite code, this would be indication
of a significant screw up by someone trying to create names before the VM config
is updated to reflect running state.  This would of course mean our tests
should set 'id' to a sensible value too.

No need to fix for this patch though - just a curiosity to look at a later
date

Daniel
