Error: Device 2049 (vbd) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.

am trying to build a ubuntu domU. I follow the instructions in the wiki ( http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/UbuntuHoaryHowTo ) and I get this message about hot plug strips not working. The primary difference is that I'm using xen unstable and the disks are all file based.

disk = [ 'file:/home/esj/xen,sda1,w',
         'file:/var/xen/swap/xen0,sda2,w' ]

one thing I noticed was that the constructed it did not have any of the kernel modules for domU so I copied them from the /usr/lib/modules/ directory on dom0

I suspect the real problem lies with the domU image production process. So, suggestions would be most appreciated.
