I'm a new xen user.  I gather from the mailing lists that this problem
occurs with excessive console output.  However, I believe dom1 was
sitting idle at the login prompt when I noticed top on dom0 was showing
python at 99% cpu.

xend would not respond to restarts.  Reboot fixed it.

What debugging output can i give you, if any, if this happens again?

Same thing here running Xen-2.0.6 (custom kernel) and gentoo dom0 and domU. I also disabled syslog-ng output on /dev/console and tty12. But I still get python at 99% in dom0 after a day or so.

I'm hoping VM-tools ( http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/aliguori/vm-tools/ ) will be backported to Xen-2 as they are small C tools that do just what I need. Or I guess I can wait for Xen-3.
