We have seen the old script get things into a state whereby the machine's
routing tables claim to be going through peth0 rather than eth0.  At the very
least, if this happened with two Xen machines on the network, then one would
complain about packets coming from the other, and I have observed this behaviour

Can anyone claim to have seen the error message with only one Xen machine on
the network?
