Description of problem:
Rarely spacewalkkoan tries to start guest (on libvirtd, after it finishes installation) although it is running and libvirt returns:

- install is still running, sleeping for 1 minute (28)
- install is still running, sleeping for 1 minute (29)
- shutdown VM detected, is the install done?  Restarting!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(running against Satellite 5.7.0 if that is importnat)

How reproducible:
very rarely (seen this kind of error for first time I guess)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Provision libvirtd guest and watch `rhn_check -vv` output on the virt host

Actual results:
Failure returned by libvirt to Satellite

Expected results:
Should work reliably

We have re-reviewed this bug, as part of an ongoing effort to improve Satellite/Proxy feature and bug updates, review and backlog.
