So either the test described above if different than what you tried, or one of you is using a build he did not intend to.
Moving back to ON_QA to verify.

Ori - can you please supply the exact steps to reproduce so we can see if your scenario and Idan's are equivalent?

Comment 5 Ori Gofen 2015-05-18 12:09:14 UTC
steps:have an ide floating disk and a vm
- run the vm
- while up, attach the ide disk
