Description of problem:
I get the following error when I try to install a rawhide
guest with virt-install 

Starting install...
libvir: Xen Daemon error : POST operation failed: (xend.err 'destroyDevice()
takes exactly 3 arguments (2 given)')

    dom = guest.start_install(conscb)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/virtinst/", line 202,
in start_install
    return XenGuest.XenGuest.start_install(self, consolecb)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/virtinst/", line 366, in

    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
