ok, take one of this 17 guests, which has no mac assigned.

xm console guestxyz
        e.g. shows eth0 with MAC-ADRESS_A
xm shutdown guestxyz
xm create guestxyz
        no more eth0 is present, since a new mac is assigned.
        ifconfig -a shows only eth1
xm shutdown 
xm create
        eth1 is gone, now you have eth2 because mac has changed.
and so on....
