It means you found a bug :)

It looks like there's a bug which affects format/allocation conversions
in recent builds. Are you doing a format/allocation conversion with your
P2V? I.e. does your profile specify an allocation policy of sparse, or a
format of qcow2? The immediate workaround would be to not do that. The
bug is simple to fix. I'll try to do it today as the impact is pretty
severe.

virt-v2v-0.8.5-2 should hit updates-testing shortly. Please try again with this new build. There's no need to rebuild your P2V image as it hasn't changed.

Please add yourself to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=767197 if you want to follow its progress through testing to stable. If you have a Fedora login, you can help it reach stable faster by adding a WorksForMe comment to https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/virt-v2v-0.8.5-2.fc16.
