Maybe you were trying to give more than 256 MB of RAM to the VMs?  This
is known to fail (usually during kernel startup).  Try "-m 256" or less.

I think this problem is avoided in newer QEMU or/and guest kernels, but
for the images I tried the problem was present.  It affects some archs
only; definitely not x86 and x86-64, but I saw it with the ARM and SPARC
images.
