FYI, similar bugs
Bug 677886 - MD5 of file is different from the original one after transferred via virtio serial 
Bug 702611 - Some files were not integrated after transferring four files from host to guest

Appears to be the same issue reported in Bug 677886. I've added your testcase there, so closing this as a dupe.
