Well, that's not good!

We were just about to implement this feature, so we'll go digging on this as well.

Subject: stopVirtualMachine command ignores the forced parameter


I'm looking at the documentation and then the code for stopVirtualMachine.
The forced parameter is passed down into the VM manager, where it seems to
be ignored. This means that cleanupEvenIfFailed during VM stop will always
be false, despite what the API command says. Going back to commit a4f4c986
in 2013, we can see that the forced parameter was used. During subsequent
refactoring, this seems to have vanished.
