I compiled xen-unstable on FC4 and the machine suceesfully boots into I can start xend properly. No other domain is running at this point of time and "xm list" shows the following output:

# xm list
Name                              ID Mem(MiB) VCPUs State  Time(s)
Domain-0                           0      581        1       r-----    35.6

However, if I try to reduce the amount of memory being used by xend (to some lower value than 581), by  issuing command
"xm mem-max 0 384"

the machine immediately reboots. Can anyone please tell me if I'm missing something or what may be the solution?
