Spoke with Cole about this issue. He was also able to see/reproduce this issue.

This has been reproduced pretty reliably. I tried to insert a sleep after the nonsparse disk creation in virt-install to see if it solved the problem. A 10 second sleep didn't help, a 20 second sleep reduced the occurrence but didn't fully stop the problem.
Danpb, I know you've fixed issues in this area before. The RHTS link has all the needed logs, could you take a look?
I'm pretty sure this one is a duplicate of the earlier 456926 that Barry and Cole have been working on. I'm going to close it as such so we don't duplicate effort.
