Virt-manager keeps its own config file. If you change things in your own 

1) Stop the domain in virt-manager
2) delete the domain in virt-manager,; or at a command line, do 'xm delete 
domain-name' (or 'virsh undefine domain-name')
3) update your config, and do 'xm new domain.cfg' (or 'virsh define xml-file', 
if you keep your config in xml format)
