Comment 2 Robin Bowes 2007-05-04 09:08:47 UTC
I have regressed to kernel-xen-2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 and everything seems to be
working again. So, it seems to be a problem in 2.6.20.

Comment 3 Eduardo Habkost 2007-06-04 13:04:27 UTC
This looks like the problem reported on bug #234008. Could you test kernel-xen 
2.6.20-1.2952.fc6, that is on updates-testing repository?

Comment 4 Chris Lalancette 2008-02-27 00:10:04 UTC
This report targets FC6, which is now end-of-life.

Please re-test against Fedora 7 or later, and if the issue persists, open a new bug.
