Yes. Remember, condor_status queries the collector for a snapshot of
all of the ads it has - but startds only send updated ads every 5 
minutes or so, or when they change states. The vm_* changes aren't
enough to cause the startd to send a new update for vm2, for example.

If you use condor_status -direct you would have gotten the correct
answer. You can also have your startds send more frequent updates to 
the collector.
