RHEL5 uses an older version of Xen networking that isn't used in that form 
anymore. I'm not sure, but I think you may have hit a bug in the network-
bridge script that I encountered some weeks ago. Basically it depends on a 
gateway output from ip route list like this "default via <IP> dev eth0". 
If the machine has several IP addresses from different subnets and 
gateways for *all* of them are not explicitely set this line looks a bit 
different and the network-bridge script fails (silently). If the Dom0 
network gets stopped and restarted by network-bridge then it works for a 
reason I have already forgotten.
You can either change the script or update to Xen 3.2 where this script 
(and other stuff) changed completely.
