Hm, I thought if you used vm-memory-dynamic-set then the new memory target 
would still be written in xenstore -- does it remain at the old value?

There's no way to disable the behaviour. However other domains should still 
work ok.

Yes you can restart squeezed without restarting xapi. You might get a transient 
failure if someone was using xapi to (eg) start a VM but if you repeat the 
command it should work ok.
