Because kvm guests processes aren't tracked by the upstart job and
they are killed immediately by /etc/init.d/sendsings. This approach
have pros (independence of libvirt from guests) and cons (this
problem) so there's no easy fix. In my previous post [1] there's an
ugly but safe workaround. If you want a definitive solution try to bug
libvirt devs by pointing this exact problem (/etc/init.d/sendsings
killing guests before libvirt-bin upstart job finishes).
