The problem I have mentioned earlier 
as far as I remember is on a Gentoo system too.
But there are no problems with the disk. 
Only network.

May be if they try to generate big load on the system,
disk drives will hang too.

At that case much more seldom.
Guys have said me that it hangs every several days
(but if it wants to it can hang several times a day).

Just a guess:

it may not be related to Xen baloon driver?

Do you use dom0_mem as a parameter for the hypervisor?
