Hi Peter,

Thank you for pointing that out, I will track the issue on that bug instead.

The same problem was already reported for disks:

The main problem is that qemu doesn't re-send the request to unplug the
device and rather reprots an eroror. At the same time the guest OS
doesn't notice it any more, so the unplug can't be finished until the VM
is rebooted.
