I tested both 5.0.6 and daily d-i images under a 64-bit capable host running lenny with a 686 kernel, and the 'lm' flag was not set in either guest. Please specify exactly which versions of kvm/qemu-kvm and the kernel you are running in the host, and whether you are using the kvm modules from the linux-image-2.6.26-2-686 or built from kvm-source.
