Yeah, this is a known bug.  Unfortunately we made a mistake in Fedora 13 and added a "fedora13" machine type that never should have existed.

There are two ways to get around it:
1)  Update your packages qemu-0.13.0-0.6.rc1.fc14 or later, which should contain a backwards compatible fix for this.

2)  Edit your domain XML (virsh edit <domain>), remove the part of the XML that says "machine='fedora-13'", and save the guest.  libvirt will fill in the "correct" machine type going forward, and this shouldn't happen again.

1) Can you push the latest qemu into rawhide? It currently only seems to be updated in f14, not f15

2) virsh 0.8.4 checks for a bad machine time and doesn't allow the change.
