'in shutdown' means QEMU has gone away, and libvirt is cleaning up
any state it has left over. There's little info on it, since you
should almost never seee it - a VM is only in that state for a tiny
fraction of a second normally.

If you have a "in shutdown" state that persists, it is probably a sign
of a bug in libvirt. You could see if libvirtd logged any interesting
error messages. As for cleaning the state, you can probably achieve
that by simply restarting libvirtd - it redetects VM state on startup
