incorrect .vmlist

One of my existing nodes died, so I restored VM's on a different node using different vm-id's. If I check the status of my cluster with "pvecm nodes" and "pvecm status" everything seems to be ok.

However, if I grep on the old node name (virt016) I still see the node listed in a file named .vmlist:

pve/.vmlist-20190216-1021:"100": { "node": "virt016", "type": "qemu", "version": 105 },
pve/.vmlist-20190216-1021:"101": { "node": "virt016", "type": "qemu", "version": 106 },
pve/.vmlist-20190216-1021:"106": { "node": "virt016", "type": "qemu", "version": 111 },

Node virt016 does NOT exist anymore. Is there a way to update this .vmlist file? It seems to be read-only :)
