rebuild and installing qemu-0.11.0-12.fc13.src.rpm from rawhide decided my problem.
Comment 2 Justin M. Forbes 2009-11-22 10:11:59 EST
This is actually a KSM issue that only appears when running on a 32bit host.  Using the kernel update from updates-testing will resolve the issue.  You can also 'service ksmtuned stop; service ksm stop' after the system has booted to temporarily restore functionality until the new kernel is shipping.
