( sorry for my late reply. i was ill this week. in fact i'm still recovering from a terrible flu. ;) )

yes, killing xenconsoled helped unfreezing the guest.
you said, that it happens on certain kernels. so should i just use another guest kernel and the problem disappears?

see you,

right now it happened again... i followed your guide, and it seems that the vm uses 100% cpu.
what can be done to fix this xenconsoled bug?

Did you also follow the steps I outlined ?

stop xend - "/etc/init.d/xend stop"

kill the xencolsoled process :
ps axl | grep xenconsoled
kill nnn (where nnn is the process ID found in the previous step)

start xend again - "/etc/init.d/xend start"

If so, did that unfreeze the guest ?
