Currently it is hard-coded as 1 day (24 hours). After this time the query
will return 'non existent job' or some such.

Looking at the VM state machine, if the state is in 'Starting', the
end-user has no way of forcing a state transition to say 'Destroyed' by
sending the 'destroyVM' command.

But I could be wrong about this. I have not tried this.
