Description of problem:
In 0628.n.3 an x86_64 install on qemu-kvm crashes occasionally with various errors in python, possibly because of memory corruption.
This might or might not be related to 607650 where an abort() is called in glibc C code because of a corrupted data structure.

This appears to be the bug I'm hitting (most times!) when installing RHEL 6 beta 2 (x86_64) in a VM on Fedora 13.
It's randomly flaking out when detecting storage, when installing packages, etc. :(
I'd prefer to communicate through BZ 607650, but that bug is non-public, giving Access Denied errors. :(
Managed to save an exception report with a recent crash, so I'll attach that in case it's useful.
