I saw a bug like this go into Bugzilla this week, but for some reason
I just can't find it right now ...  Maybe someone else can find it?

I believe if you're using KVM that there is no difference if the arch
selected is i686 or x86-64.  KVM provides an x86-64 processor - if you
choose to install a i686 operating system in it, so be it.

You could try to give the guest some amount of memory which is just
under 2GB, eg.  1800KB.
