It means you found a bug :)

It looks like there's a bug which affects format/allocation conversions in recent builds. Are you doing a format/allocation conversion with your P2V? I.e. does your profile specify an allocation policy of sparse, or a format of qcow2? The immediate workaround would be to not do that. The bug is simple to fix. I'll try to do it today as the impact is pretty severe.
