What do you mean exactly? Can you specify which exact
behaviour/functionality  you are missing?
What I mean is that the bridge is too smart - it works like a switch by sending the packets to the "port" they are supposed to be send to. I need a hub instead so that all hosts will receive all packages.

Does anybody know if a similar setup is also possible with Xen?

In general, Xen networking has a routed, natted, and bridged mode.
Things that are supported by the Linux Kernel. It might exist  but I
don't know of "hub" networking functions in the kernel. If there's
Kernel function for it, and userspace tools to administer them, you
can write your own network script.
Ok, I didn`t mean these functions - I am using bridged mode but I am asking for a possibility for the bridge to act like a hub.
