I agree on this.

I agree on this, too. My tests showed that you are right with your
assumption so far.
But i would have used the matching kernel patch, too.

I've tried Debians 2.6.18 patched for XEN 3.1.2 myself.

That's the last thing I wanted to try but couldn't find time to reboot the
affected server to test it out. My intention was not to use a distro
kernel, as Debians 2.6.18 is patched for XEN 3.0.3. I could stay with my
current 3.0.4 system and I would be more recent.
