I'll mark the Win9x VMs offline when there's nothing queued to run on them.
Then in a weeks time I can delete them after all jobs referring to them
have been retired/deleted (referential integrity in the database).
So for the next week you'll see a red dot with "One or more VMs are offline"
on the testbot main page, don't be alarmed by this.
