Are you sure that both the hypervisor and userland are the same version (3.2) in both Etch and Lenny?

Ubuntu's default kernel is newer pv_ops kernel, which might not be identified correctly as xen-compatible by old xen userland tools.
Try copying the kernel and initrd to dom0, and boot it (i.e. not using "bootloader", but "kernel", "ramdisk", and "extra"). My guess is it will show the same message.
