You mean copy to dom0, right?

You mean you reinstall domU's so it's ext3 now?

pygrub does not need "extra" line. pv-grub does.
Also, if /boot is not its own partition, the "extra" line for pv-grub becomes

extra = "(hd0,0)/boot/grub/menu.lst"

So it's down to pygrub problem now.
Not really sure what the problem is. It might be a problem with pygrub
parsing grub2's config file, but I'm not really sure. Perhaps you can
try uninstalling grub-pc on domU (which is grub2, the default for
Lucid), and use grub (the legacy grub) instead. Afterwards, make sure
there's a /boot/grub/menu.lst with the correct entries (you might need
to run update-grub first)
