Check virt-manager --debug output when reproducing, and compare that to
whatever XML you are passing to virsh.

virtinst/deviceinterface.py is the bit that handles building the guest
<interface> XML
virtManager/netlist.py and ui/netlist.ui contain the bits for the network
selection drop down.

There's also a bug for this, but no one is working on it:
