It Just happened.

3. Login as ordinary user
4. su - in a terminal
5. lvextend the volume for /var
6. resize2fs /var
Lost mouse pointer, no response to keyboard input, no caps lock LED, no

end of resize2fs
booted with 3500M on a 4GB x86_64 (Intel Core Duo on a i965 motherboard)

From the last innocuous entry through next boot
This is probably just another symptom of the problems using Xen on i965
