In virt-manager(1), it says that the MAC address for KVM virtual machines

We've fixed a few bugs with default MAC prefixes over the past year, so it's
probably fixed upstream. What virt-manager and virtinst version are you using?
And where exactly in virt-manager are you seeing this?

I'm using CentOS 5.5 x86_64 and looking at the virt-manager man page from python-virtinst-0.400.3-9.el5_5.1. It is a statement in the man page's description of the --mac option. If one creates a VM and defaults the MAC address, it does indeed get set to 52:54:00:xx:xx:xx.
