I found it!

When a change occur on one backend device we call cleanup_devices() for each 
device in bus. 

The problem is: the test to see if that device was changed is being done with 
strncmp(), using the length of the changed node as maximum length to be 

I think the idea is that any sub-node should be matched also, like: if 
"backend/1/status" changed we have to call backend_changed to "backend/1" 
device, and that is ok. But with that code If we delete device "backend/1" 
all devices matching "backend/1*" are being deleted also.

Suggestions on the best/prettier way to handle that?
