Description of problem:
Bug 245203 fixed the libvirt side of this problem, but virt-manager needs to set
this attribute during the install of windows guests. (And allow it to be
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install windows guest with virt-manager
2. Look at clock
Time in UTC
Isn't this exactly the kind of thing the guest OS selection is meant to be for?
Yes, if you select the 'Windows' guest OS type during the installation wizard it
is supposed to automatically configure the clock to 'localtime'. Can you confirm
what OS type you selected, and provide the /root/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log
file which will tell us what clock source was configured for the guest.

Virt manager log
This log shows that I selected windows XP (which I did).
Looks like virt-inst library isn't configuring the clock source correctly. It is
adding the USB tablet for sane Windows mouse, but not setting clock at all.
A fix was applied for this:
Specifying you are installing a windows guest should set 'localtime'
automatically. I'll close this bug when a new release is pushed out. Thanks!

If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update python-virtinst'
Localtime is now detected on a new WinXP install. Thanks!
