I can boot dom0 and create and start other domains.  Unfortunately,

worth), and I can get in on the serial console and use SysRq to
send commands to the hung system, so I know the kernel is still
responding, but all ssh sessions active on dom0 or on any other
domain hang.  The syslog shows no message before the reboots,
and there are no particular error messages in xend.log.

Has anyone else seen something similar?  Is this a known problem,
and can it be fixed?  Thanks for your comments.

I have this same problem on my box<athlon xp>.... I'm not positive what it is yet.. I'm running Gentoo, so anytime I attempt to upgrade/compile something on Dom0, it causes massive timeouts on dom0/U's. This started happening after upgrading to Xen 3.0.1/ I didn't have the issue in Xen 2.x. I've got a test box also<amd64> that is having the issues under 2.6.16. I was sort of wondering if it was the change in the time schedular, or other hardware conflicts. The dom0 kernel is very minimal, and has nothing compiled in but what is required to function as a server. I'll let ya know if I find anything more out. So far I've not seen many people complain of this issue, so I assumed it was my cheap hardware.
