I have not created a plain old Windows domU on SP1 and tried to copy
that over to the new one. I'll try to do that tomorrow. I have created a
windows domU on the SP2 server and that works as you'd expect.

I actually used to have this documented myself, because I had to
manually remove the 0.8.8 version on several domU's one time. Can't find
it though... :-(
