What is wrong here?

have you tried asking anyone on the kickstart or anaconda lists? it
looks like a bug in anaconda to me. it would be interesting to see if
you get the same errors if you leave out the additional repo sections.
but from what you have posted this does not look like a cobbler/koan or
lib-virt for that matter issue....
