I once had a boss who said "if it ain't reproducible for me, it ain't
working" :-)    Meaning it is useful to reproduce where you are from
every now and then as otherwise it can be very difficult for a "new
user".   With only one domain working, we haven't had many users, but
once we have multiple domains and networking alive and solid,
I expect we will have a number of people trying Xen/ia64 and it would
be a shame if we aren't able to provide reproducible instructions.

Could one or both of you at least post your xmdefconfig and information
about the environment for your second domain (e.g. second partition of
same disk; new disk; booting from file)?
