Description of problem:
When I run "xm create -c xen1", my computer crashes (the host computer crashes).

Walk through:
# uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4xen0 #1 SMP Fri Jul 15 01:53:34 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

[root@localhost ~]# service xend start

[root@localhost ~]# xm list

[root@localhost ~]# xm balloon 0 384

[root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/xen/xen1
kernel ="/boot/config-2.6.12-1.1398_FC4xenU"
memory = 64
name = "xen1"
nics = 1
disk = ['file:///tmp/xen/1/fedora.img,sda1,w']
root = "/dev/sda1 ro"

[root@localhost ~]# ls -la /tmp/xen/1/fedora.img
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 1074790400 Jul 17 20:17 /tmp/xen/1/fedora.img

Running an strace of xm create shows where the crash occurs:
 send(3, "POST /xend/domain HTTP/1.1\rHost"..., 149, 0) = 149
 send(3, "config=%28vm%28name+xen1%29+%28"..., 403, 0
No further output.
