I have a similar situation on two machines running xen3 (xen-3.0-testing
20051228). After a short time (days) dom0 fills up with memory and
eventually kills the watchdog process (which in turn reboots the machine
as I use softdog with the nowayout module option, for exactly this

I am using bridging, not nat, if that makes any difference.

I'll add free memory to mrtg and see what that uncovers...
