Since this issue was obviously happening only for me, I went looking for potential causes specific to my configuration.

My init scripts start xend with trace_start.

I backed this out (to just use "start"), rebooted, and everything came up normally. Rebooted again, likewise. Changed it back to trace_start, rebooted again, same failure as described in the thread this should be attached to. Changed it to start again, works.

So -- for the initial issue, I have a workaround by way of avoiding trace_start, but I'd argue that it's quite certainly a bug that trace_start has side effects of this variety. Should I file a bug, or does someone else have it?
