What I did before was trying the /etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge restart and 
it tells me somehting about "device busy" and "peth0 not configured". If I do 
a "ifconfig peth0 down" and rerun the script it doesn't output anything. But 
if I rerun it again, the same error appears...

I'll try the second part in a minute, need to reboot again :(
