This lacks consistency, the test results should be the same whether
the test is run individually or as part of a batch.

Orthogonal to this is a way to stop a test at a particular point.  For instance:

- the bit rotten runkvm.py tried to do this with options such as
--testname and --final
- kvmunner.py leaves the domains running with the last test (after
gathering results)

I kind of like something along the lines of runkvm's -- run everything
up to and including a given script.

As my original post tried to point out, if pluto crashes (not aborts)
while the machine is shutting down we'll miss that - I just happened
to notice the problem because I had an inconsistency between some
