[libvirt-users] virsh cannot list broken guest.

  I am starting to learn using libvirt with kvm on CentOS 6.
  Just used this command to start a guest:
virt-install -ntest -r1024 --vcpus=1
--os-type=linux --os-variant=rhel6 --disk vol=kvmguests/test --vnc -v
--virt-type=kvm --check-cpu --prompt --arch=x86_64
  Then I found out that I misconfigured vnc. And I do not know how to
gracefully stop qemu. So I killed it.
  Then with the command, I got:
ERROR    Guest name 'test' is already in use.
What is the name of your virtual machine?
  But at this time, there is nothing listed in virsh:
Welcome to virsh, the virtualization interactive terminal.

Type:  'help' for help with commands
       'quit' to quit

virsh # list
 Id Name                 State

virsh # connect qemu:///system

virsh # list
 Id Name                 State

virsh #

  What should I do?
