I can reproduce it with just the following:

    sudo lxc-create --n lxc-test --template download --bdev dir --dir
/var/lib/lxc/lxc-test/rootfs -- -d ubuntu -r bionic -a amd64
    sudo lxc-start -n lxc-test
    sudo lxc-stop -n lxc-test

The lxc-stop command never exits and the container continues running. 
If that isn't sufficient to reproduce, please let me know.
