I cannot reproduce it with virsh either. The problem occured with the C API, 
maybe virsh does some extra testing before start a domain?

Also note that my case did not involve redefining the domain with a new XML 
definition, just starting a domain that had already been defined before.

Unfortunately, the problem occurs inside a fairly large, and unfortunately not 
Open-Source, C++ program. I will try to reduce it to a minimal testcase as 
soon as I get around to it.

No. I'm essentially just using virDomainLookupByName() and then calling 
virDomainCreate() on the returned value. I'm not even touching any uuids.
