Yes, it does.  But I'm seeing some pretty odd things while xentrace is
running: first time all my SATA drives stopped responding, and the
second time my ethernet device started getting tx watchdog timeouts. 
Perhaps the large amount of IO caused by xentrace is causing other bugs
to become apparent, but this has been an otherwise very stable system...
