A VDI file created as Sparse cannot be cloned

I created a Windows VM with 20G sparse file, which ends up in a 3 GB file. Then I used Vboxmanage cloning features to clone the disk and when I tried to reuse it in a new virtual machine, the new machine refuses to boot saying "Disk Read Error". I use SUSE 10 SP2.
