Unfortunately I don't have any time to maintain this machine currently -
it's in the office and I'm not. So I've disabled wpt and am testing

Would it be possible to have xen hook into the syslog facility of dom0,
which could then be relayed to another server? Most likely dom0 would be
too broken by this point to be able to function in this way though.

The domain that is crashing is a mail server. It's running exim4 + cyrus
+ mailscanner (+ sendmail + razor + clamav), so it works reasonably hard
but is still just doing disk and network io, nothing really special.

Would that error be caused by it running out of memory? I've not seen it
even get close to that though, but if a lot of large emails came in in
one hit it could happen...
