one other thing I noticed was that when I try to use Reiser FS, I kept getting exceptions from the journaling code. So I decided to take the cowards way out and switch to ext3. now the exceptions may have been a fault of my own doing because there is a high probability I did not have my domU filesystem fully set up with udev. In any case, onward and upward.

I am probably barking up the wrong tree, but did you use a file-backed device (i.e. file: instead of phys: in the xen conf file) for any of your reiserfs partitions? I have heard from multiple sources that journalled filesystems (and that includes ext3) do not play well with file-backed mounts (although with User Mode Linux it is said to work OK if the host writes to the file using O_SYNC).
