Subject Re: Resetting a VM is broken?
Date Wed, 19 Mar 2014 21:40:14 GMT
I could be wrong, but I thought as recently as 4.3 that Reset VM
essentially stopped and then re-started the VM with the same root disk.

It seemed to differ from Reboot VM only in the sense that the VM was never
technically stopped (the OS inside the VM was just rebooted).
