those are our on_* settings:

on_poweroff = 'destroy'
on_reboot = 'restart'
on_crash = 'restart'

the same config file works as expected on a debian etch host with xen 3.3.1.

But I have I've got a bit farther to the problem now:

If I reboot a domU from within the domU it hangs on state s after shutdown It will hang there forever until I create another domain. If I create another domain, the one hanging at state s also gets started again.
        It won't work with destroying another domain.

I have attached the xend.log output from the following scenario:

        create domU: g-m5t12oln
        reboot domU g-m5t12oln from within vm
        (g-m5t12oln hangs on state s now)
        create domU: g-nbjaohbe
        (g-m5t12oln starts too now)

        reboot domU g-nbjaohbe from within vm
        (g-nbjaohbe hangs on state s now)

        destroy g-m5t12oln
        (g-nbjaohbe still hangs on state s)

        create domU: g-m5t12oln
        (g-nbjaohbe starts too now)

What does /var/log/xen/xend.log say?
Do you have any "on_reboot" line on your domU config file?
