The default SELinux policy on FC6 only labels  /xen with neccesary
context to allow XenD access to the disk. So if you want to store
your images under /var/xen then you need to either symlink this to
/xen, or better add your path to the policy, eg

 # semanage fcontext -a -f "" -t xen_image_t '/var/xen(/.*)?'
 # restorecon -R /var/xen
