Today I upgraded a system (Dom0 and 6 DomU's) all running debian lenny.
The only problem I saw was that with the 2.6.32 stock debian kernel the domU's
could not find their root filesystem if the device was /dev/sda2. After
changing that to /dev/xvda2 all was fine.

And there is a Grub2 issue in debian where the xen hypervisor entries are listed
after the vanilla debian kernels, which is annoying. Solution was to rename
/etc/grub.d/20_linux_xen to /etc/grub.d/09_linux_xen, which I know is a hack
but DD's are still working on the issue.

Also noticed some other minor problems but those were mostly not XEN related.
