The problem is literally just in the virt-manager UI (and it's been 
fixed there since virt-manager 0.4.0).  So there are several things you 
could do in the meantime, including upgrading to a recent virt-manager 
using the FC6/F7 src RPM, or using /usr/sbin/virt-install directly, or 
(I think this will work?) creating the disk image first by hand.
