[et-mgmt-tools] virt-name in cobbler profile?

The man page for cobbler says:

(optional) (Virt-only) what the Virt guest name should start with.
Creating multiple images on a machine will cause increasing numbers
to be appended to this name.  The default is "virtguest".

When I specify a virt-name of RH4U5 and try and create multiple
guests using koan:
koan --virt --server=kickstart.mtc.ibsys.com \

It creates the first one named RH4U5 but does not append a number
to the second one and fails with an error:

libvir: Xen Daemon error : POST operation failed: (xend.err "Error
creating domain: VM name 'RH4U5' already in use by domain 2")

Is this functionailty missing? Not implemented yet?

Also the koan man page says:
If you add the --interactive flag, you can watch the kickstart
as it happens in an "xm console".

But koan says it doesn't know what --interactive means:
koan: error: no such option: --interactive
