just for fun my domain overwrote the shared_info_page with some repeated random value, whereafter the domain stopped responding (no surprise there).

I could still 'xm list' my running domains, but trying to 'xm destroy' the dead domain left xm hanging, and xend unresponsive. The only way to get xend running again was by booting the machine.

Calling xc_destroy() in libxc directly still left the domain hanging.

This is in the unstable tree.
