[PVE-User] VM restore

Hi all,

is there a difference between hitting the "Restore" button on the GUI 
and the command :
qmrestore vzdump-qemu-144-2013_05_23-22_32_14.tar.lzo 177 -unique   ?

I wanted to instanciate a clone of a VM by using one of the backups. I 
used the GUI for that, created the new VM by resoring the backup. But 
every modification made on the clone's disk is impacting the original 
VM. It is as if they share a unique storage (clvm on an iSCSI LUN).

And now, I can't destroy the clone, the error is : TASK ERROR: lvremove 
'clvm/vm-176-disk-1' error: got lock timeout - aborting command

There is something I don't understand in the "Restore" process. Can 
someone help me with this ?
