You seem to be right. I explored the files in traceback.img and they contain this line.

So there are two solutions:

1. Ask James Laska (or someone else) to fix this problem.

2. Ask Anaconda team to provide us with their "official" and supported solution.

After inspecting updates.img, there is a lot of code copied from (some old version of) anaconda. That doesn't seem to me as a good solution, because we might get completely unrelated problems in the process. I imagine anaconda guys could provide us with a much better solution. For example they could add "traceback" kernel option that causes anaconda crash on startup. This is just a few lines of code, it would be maintained, and doesn't involve any updates.img downloading etc. What do you think? I'll discuss with anaconda team if noone has better ideas.

eog doesn't help much when I still need to download it. PNG can be viewed in the browser.

I think hitting "Virtual Machine -> Print screen" (available when running VMs from virt-manager) or generic Alt+Printscreen (that would include VM window borders, but who cares) is just really simple as well.
