Can you get a serial line attached to this machine?

Failing that, can you try doing all this whilst logged into dom0's text 
console - we might see some sort of panic message come out there (if X is 
running in dom0, it'll hide the panic message).

Also, what release of Xen is this?  2.0.5?  2.0-testing?  How did you install 
it (self build, vs RPMs).

Not at all.  It should work just fine.
