I couldn't either.

Perhaps, the gateway failed to push the dirty cache objects when qemu
shutdowns cleanly?  Currently, local_release_vdi() deletes cache
objects even when object_cache_flush_vdi() fails, and returns
SD_RES_SUCCESS to qemu always.  I think it's safe to delete cache
objects only when sheep successfully push them, and the gateway should
return the result code to qemu on error so that the user can know it.
