When running lxc-start with a container name that does not exist it creates a folder under "/container" directory and its associated log file. This can occur when mistyping a container name. This can cause confusion when you want to go back and clean up the container directory. Especially when the name mistake is of by one letter.
ie: container_name and contairner_name
In above example, the problematic letter is the "r" that could be typed by mistake. This could potentially impact a user as they might inadvertently delete the wrong directory.
One first creates the container with correct name
The result is a new container created with the wrong name mistyped "contairner_name".
