Hallo  Madd!

I have the same problem.
Did you  find a solution?

Which distri and version do you use?
# xm dmesg | grep version

I have perhaps a workaround.

Adding netloop.nloopbacks=16 should help.

For grub for example, this would look like below:

title Xen
  kernel /boot/xen-3.1.gz dom0_mem=256M
module /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-xen root=/dev/md1 netloop.nloopbacks=16 xencons=off
  module /boot/initrd-2.6.18-xen.img
