This config looks ok to me. You'll get an error like that with pygrub,
which doesn't work with the Remus disk replication yet, but your HVM
config looks correct. I've just tested 32-bit HVM ubuntu on
xen-4.0-testing (rc9), and this syntax works here.
I don't suppose you have any more information in /var/log/daemon.log
or the xen logs (e.g., /var/log/xen/xend.log) ?
