Bug Description

Shutting down a domU with xen- doesn't terminate the corresponding blktap2
process, since one (other) VM uses a image file, which contains spaces in its
file name. /var/log/xen/xend-debug.log has the following information:

Unhandled exception in thread started by
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/xen/xend/server/", line 199, in finishDeviceCleanup
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/xen/xend/server/", line 289, in destroy
    tapdisk = TapdiskController.fromDevice(device)

    key, value = pair.split('=')
