I wondered that and handwaved it to myself as being the
HLT-with-interrupt-disabled logic kicking in and shutting down the guest
but now that I look it seems that this just triggers a domain shutdown
event to dom0 and doesn't actually destroy the domain (which is actually
as expected before I handwaved). So I'm a bit surprised again now too.
