[virt-tools-list] virt-install does not work on 24-CPU machine ?


I am trying to place VM on specific core using virt-install but it seems there is a problem with core number >12.
The virsh capabilities returns:
      <cells num='4'>
        <cell id='0'>
          <cpus num='6'>
            <cpu id='0'/>
            <cpu id='1'/>
            <cpu id='2'/>
            <cpu id='3'/>
            <cpu id='4'/>
            <cpu id='5'/>
        <cell id='1'>
          <cpus num='6'>
            <cpu id='6'/>
            <cpu id='7'/>
            <cpu id='8'/>
            <cpu id='9'/>
            <cpu id='10'/>
            <cpu id='11'/>
        <cell id='2'>
          <cpus num='6'>
            <cpu id='18'/>
            <cpu id='19'/>
            <cpu id='20'/>
            <cpu id='21'/>
            <cpu id='22'/>
            <cpu id='23'/>
        <cell id='3'>
          <cpus num='6'>
            <cpu id='12'/>
            <cpu id='13'/>
            <cpu id='14'/>
            <cpu id='15'/>
            <cpu id='16'/>
            <cpu id='17'/>
which is OK.
When I run
virt-install -d --import --connect qemu:///system --nographics --noautoconsole --name=test --network network=default,mac=00:01:01:ab:cd:ed --ram=256 --disk path=/tmp/vm-base.img,device=disk,format=raw,size=2,cache=none --cpuset=0,1,2
everything is ok.
virt-install -d --import --connect qemu:///system --nographics --noautoconsole --name=test --network network=default,mac=00:01:01:ab:cd:ed --ram=256 --disk path=/tmp/vm-base.img,device=disk,format=raw,size=2,cache=none --cpuset=13
I have a message telling me that the cpuset's numbers must be less than pCPU

My machine is a bi-AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6164 HE (12 core/cpu) with debian squeeze. I have tried with the squeeze packages as well as the wheezy one but it still fails.
ii  libvirt-bin                         0.9.12-11                    programs for the libvirt library
ii  libvirt0                            0.9.12-11                    library for interfacing with different virtualization systems
ii  python-libvirt                      0.9.12-4~bpo60+1             libvirt Python bindings
ii  qemu-kvm                            1.1.2+dfsg-6                 Full virtualization on x86 hardware
ii  virt-viewer                         0.2.1-1                      Displaying the graphical console of a virtual machine
ii  virtinst                            0.600.1-3                    Programs to create and clone virtual machines
Is this a debian related bug or no ?

I have also post a bugreport if you are interested in.


Thank you in advance for any answer I could have.
