This is a bug basically.  I have filed a bug report here:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1026688

It would be helpful to try with a newer version of libguestfs.  Ubuntu
has just pushed the 1.24.0 package.  I don't know if it'll help or
not, but it would be useful to know if the behaviour changes.

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libguestfs/1:1.24.0-0ubuntu1/+build/5181109
