Description Kwan Lowe 2006-03-30 07:41:24 EST
Description of problem:
The "xm create" script checks the current directory before /etc/xen. If the
current directory contains a file/dir of the same name as a config file it will
kick back an error. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Create a file/dir in the current directtory that matches the name of an existing
/etc/xen config file. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir /tmp/foo; cd /tmp/foo; touch xm01; mkdir xm02
2. xm create xm01
3. xm create xm02
Actual results:
Using config file "xm02".
Error: [Errno 21] Is a directory: 'xm02'

[root@darkstar foo]# xm create xm01
Using config file "xm01".
Error: No kernel specified

Expected results:
xm should check /etc/xen before the current dir to locate the config file.
