Hello, I'm creating domU's with a lot of VIFs each. On one of my
computers, I've been able to create a domU with 30 VIFs successfully.
On another one, however, the domU fails during boot with this error:

Error: Device 15 (vif) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working.

The Device number that it shows (15 in this case) is sometimes higher
and sometimes lower (sometimes domU finishes booting successfully.
This happens about once in three times). Both computer have the same
hardware, the same config files, and even the same DomU image. Anyone
know why this is happening? Thanks

vif = [ "bridge=br0", "bridge=br1", ..................., "bridge=br30" ]
disk = [ 'file:/home/xen/image,xvda,w' ]
