To my knowledge I don't think any of us use extended VGA text modes. I
think we're just rather 'surprised' that it doesn't just work. After Xen
has relinguished the VGA console, domain 0 should be able to use it
however it pleases. 

However, how does dom0 set the extended text mode? I presume it doesn't
use a BIOS call. Perhaps it can't cope with the scroll state we leave
the console in?
The former would be a huge pain. Anything else is probably trivially
fixed once the cause is discovered.
