As of the -23 kernel the problems are still there. Do you
know if that update happened or not?

Here's some output from just tonight. I did a dselect 
just this afternoon:

root at kdev:/vmpool1# guestfish

Welcome to guestfish, the libguestfs filesystem interactive shell for
editing virtual machine filesystems.

Type: 'help' for help on commands
      'man' to read the manual
      'quit' to quit the shell

><fs> sparse newdisk 30G
><fs> run
warning: Unable to get device geometry for /var/tmp/guestfs.wcyQC2/root
febootstrap-supermin-helper: ext2: parent directory not found: /lib: File not found by ext2_lookup
libguestfs: error: external command failed, see earlier error messages

I've included rjones from the guestfish team just in
case I got something wrong or in case he has useful
suggestions for you.
