Seems like we're in a similar although not identical environment.

I think there's not much difference (or perhaps none at all) between the
backported etch kernel and the lenny kernel?

I've planned an upgrade to 2.6.26-2-xen-amd64 in the next few weeks to
see if that makes a difference and have just added a swapfile to one of
the two troubled VMs.

Please keep me informed about your progress; I'll do the same.
