I never had this problem, but here's several things you might want to try:
- udate your OS. RHEL 5.5. is out already. At least update your kernel-xen rpm.
- update your Xen version. Xen 3.4.2 (the easy way is from Gitco) has
been quite stable for me. If you want to try latest version, you could
also test Xen 4.0
