I don't know what it is that makes you say this, but Lenny's stock Xen
packages (64 bit) have been very reliable for me.

I have more than 10 machines running that setup. Some have only 8G of ram; I
have a few 32GB machines and one 64GB machine. They run anything from 10 to
close to 40 domUs.

And they are rock solid.

Like I said, they are all Opteron machines - most dual core, some quad core.

Perhaps the problems you are seeing are caused by Intel-specific codepaths?
