Package: virt-manager
Version: 0.8.7-1
Severity: normal

When trying to create a new virtual machine virt-manager prints on "Step 
Warning: host doest't support hardware virtualization. Installation 
parameters may be restricted.
(I got this message in Russian so this is my translation. If one have this 
message in English please fix it)

However, creation comletes succesfully and then guest runs in "xen 
(fullvirt)" mode.

Version 0.8.4 also affected.

Processor Xeon E5630, motherboard Supermicro X8DTU, Intel 5520 
(Tylersburg) Chipset. RHEL5.4 with old virt-manager hasn't this problem on
