Have you got a serial line on the machine? If so, if you have a
debug build we should be getting interesting debugging.

Also, before trying to destroy the domain, hit ctrl-A three times
and then 'q' and 'o'.

This will do an audit of all the domain's remaining memory, and
might give us a clue as to what is broken.

Even more informative might be to add a call to audit_domains()
in the "Bad page free for domain" error path in xen/common/dom_mem_ops.c

What are you doing in the domains that's causing this bug? We've
tried to reproduce but can't so far.
