Yes, output of "free" command show the same amount of memory

It was only to verify that after shutdown/power on the changed setting
would have been applied to the VM

The window I got when I increased the amount of memory was the same as in a
previous test where I selected "Cancel", before libvirt update; see
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwoPbcrMv8mvbUw2VnpCMTNNQlU/view?usp=sharing

And I also commented about misleading information inside it: I didn't
clearly understand what would have been changed and what not, because I see
memory information in both parts.....

The gui events have the same timestamp of the moment when I pressed ok.
After 2-3 minutes I did shutdown and power on of the VM and I only got the
down/up events...
I'm available to make further test you need.
