I tried to do live migration from machine A to B. After the migration, machine 
A still had the record of the VM, though the VM was not running any more. Also, 
if I shut down the VM on machine B, its record on B would be gone --- I could 
not see it using "xm list" anymore. However, I can still start the VM on 
machine A using "xm start". 

Looks like the migration just move the live version of the VM, while its record 
still remains at the original machine. Is this the expected behavior?

Many thanks!
