Hi Pasi,

Thanks for the response. This seems to have been caused by an update from CentOS 5.3 to 5.4. I'm not exactly sure what packages were specifically affected during the update, but after reluctantly rebooting the server, it came back up and Xen started functioning completely normally. Could quite easily have been xenconsoled, I suppose.

Many thanks,
Ricky Burgin

   Systems that have not had to be rebooted are still running fine.

Do you have xenconsoled running? 

Sometimes it dies on its own, and I've also seen it getting stuck; in
that you need to kill and restart it.

broken xenconsoled could cause problems you described..
