[virt-tools-list] "problem" with virt-win-reg

I have a Windows 7 VM that I have exported to an NFS share.  Running
virt-win-reg against it using the following command, I get the
following error (I'm attempting to get the hostname of the server from
the registry):

# virt-win-reg exportedVM
hivexsh: cd: subkey 'CurrentControlSet' not found
hivexget failed: 256 at /usr/bin/virt-win-reg line 321.

However, if I grep for CurrentControlSet, it seems to find it just fine:

virt-win-reg exportedVM 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\' | grep CurrentControlSet


Am I missing something?
