ok, I understand what you mean.

My point was that config file should reflect what is really plugged in running vm.
For me, that's more confusing to display a device in gui, if it not really yet available until next reboot.

Also, if hotplug fail, and device is in conf, we cannot retry to hotplug it or unplug it,without manual config file edit to remove it.

>>What can make hotplug fail exactly (beside bugs in KVM)? 

mmm,indeed, I didn't see a hotplug/unplug fail since a while...(doesn't see it with qemu 1.0 I think).

So maybe can we try like this, and see if it's works fine for proxmox users ?
