[one-users] running vms appears as suspended

First of all, a big thank you to all the developers and supporters who make this project possible.  We wouldn't be here without you!

I have an interesting problem where I created a method of backing up virtual machine disks (qcow2) by suspending the vm, copying the disk image locally, and resuming the vm.  Not the most elegant solution, but for what I need it gets the job done.  The problem occurs when the virtual machine manager polls a host that the backup job is currently running on.  If the vm is suspended, VMM puts the host into the SUSPENDED state.  However when VMM returns to the host for later polls, it seems the vm is ignored.  The vms are up and running, without issue, yet onevm shows the host as being suspended.  Onevm resume will cause the vm to be destroyed (there is no state file).

I am running 2.2, do more recent versions resolve this issue?  How can I force VMM to poll the host or is there a way to set the state back to running without destroying and redeploying the vm?
