When terminating a VM, nimbus-control will query the VM status in a loop until it is gone, see https://github.com/nimbusproject/nimbus/blob/nimbus-release-2.10.1/control/src/python/workspacecontrol/main/wc_core.py#L327

However, inside lvrt_common.py:info, the VM can disappear between the call to _get_vm_by_handle (https://github.com/nimbusproject/nimbus/blob/nimbus-release-2.10.1/control/src/python/workspacecontrol/defaults/lvrt/lvrt_common.py#L239) and the call to XMLDesc (https://github.com/nimbusproject/nimbus/blob/nimbus-release-2.10.1/control/src/python/workspacecontrol/defaults/lvrt/lvrt_common.py#L250), which produces an exception:
