I rebuilt the xend package using the spec file and patch from the rpm and the tar ball at xen-source it plays nicer now. I had to make a few changes in the %files section of the spec file some chnages. Any explanation for the non dev crowd for this?

Upstream xen-unstable is very aptly named. It looks like there's always something broken, and always something else ;( Any time I resync to a different upstream Xen snapshot I'm essentially playing russian roulette ;)

I will hit the xen-devel list for now, their is way too many things going on for one bug report in bugzilla. If I get a build that plays nice on my SMP FC4 will update.

More recent xen changeset's are behaving much better.
