When a guest is stuck this way, it's constantly in running state.
There is some confusion in the report, yes.

Yes, that agrees with my experience.

It isn't that simple.  Other guests lock up when they fill their
console buffers, apparently.  But new guests seem to work fine for
me.  Just try it, when you next experience this: stop xend, kill
xenconsoled, start xends.  Don't touch xenstored!  If everything
returns to normal, then this was it.  If not, then something else. :)
