I'm getting the exact same error on 'one' of my servers and it does not have any 'xen' packages installed.  Python version 2.4.3, same as all my other rhel5 servers.
Comment 2 James Antill 2013-03-12 16:55:22 EDT
 There were a few problems like this due to xen packages being installed from CD but then not being available post install.
 This should be fixed in RHEL-6, if only because xen doesn't exist.
