That shouldn't happen. You're doing the right thing with upstart. I
double checked with one of the experts. :) Something else seems to be
killing libvirt-bin. Try putting a a post-stop thing in the libvirt-bin
job to log when it's being killed, just to double check.

Good question. Upstart shouldn't be killing it, but something else
might. I can't imagine what, though.

The script still has some debugging stuff in it. That would need to go
away before we can include this in the package.

Thanks for your efforts so far! This has been a problem for a looong
