This is pretty strange ... *after* restarting libvirtd?

If it's a qemu/KVM guest, I would suggest just killing the qemu
process associated with the guest.

If the guest doesn't boot, try virt-rescue but ***only*** when you are
sure the guest [ie. qemu] is not running.  Otherwise you'll
permanently corrupt the disks.

virt-df lists disk usage of guests without needing to install any
software inside the virtual machine.  Supports Linux and Windows.
