I mentioned this to someone on the IRC channel and they said "That is
documented behavior." Unfortunately that doesn't bring back my data. It
wasn't documented when I started using Xen and I can't possibly keep up
on everything written about Xen in the meantime.

I'm not sure if the behaviour is documented, but it certainly isn't new. Save/restore has always behaved like that -- a filesystem should be considered 'locked down' by a guest except when the guest OS is shut down cleanly. No interlock is enforced or metadata maintained for this in open source tools.
