I don't believe that you are actually running libvirt 0.6.4, because this bug was fixed in the 0.6.4 release. Please reboot the host, or restart the libvirtd daemon and re-verify. I doubt you'll be able to reproduce this bug after doing that.
You're correct. Works after a reboot. (Usually I remember, but must be slipping in my old age)
You'll get this error on F-11 if you update to qemu-0.10.50, though - we might as well fix it
