The domain0 linux kernel was xen-2.0-testing, last change in ChangeLog:

  ChangeSet@xxxxxx, 2005-03-01 17:40:10+00:00, kaf24@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I am not sure if Xen itself had the same version or if it was
2.0.4 (i first forgot to update the "kernel" line, too). I can
try to reproduce that error again when i'm back on monday to 
verify the versions - shall i?

there is no sig.
