I can reproduce that on Xen/Linux (finally got that to work).
a file:/ entry works for disk, but not phy:. The testcase I do is a
cdrom-drive, so the line is:

disk = ['file:/xen/slack/linux.img,hda,w' ,

I tried to reverse the order, and to make that a one-liner, so I suspect
it is a parsing-problem. Anyway, all phy: stuff failing sounds a bit
strange ;-)

Sooo, anybody an idea why that fails? Ideas where it failes, or how
I could track down the latter (not much python skills, not much
kernel-skills ;-))

What is the second argument, btw? Is it the name of the device the domU
