With 'xm rename' and 'xm restore' commands, it's possible to start several
domains with the same properties (same config file).

- create a config file named 'A'
- xm create A
- xm rename A B
- xm save B B.save
- xm create A
- xm restore B.save

At this time, there is two domains A and B with the same properties
(same hard disk, same IP address, etc..).

The correct behavior would be to reject the "xm restore B.save".
