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

virt-v2v-0.8.5-2 should hit updates-testing shortly. Please try again with this new build. There's no need to rebuild your P2V image as it hasn't changed.

Please add yourself to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=767197 if you want to follow its progress through testing to stable. If you have a Fedora login, you can help it reach stable faster by adding a WorksForMe comment to https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/virt-v2v-0.8.5-2.fc16.
