This one might be on old or Debian-specific bug. I've tested "xm
shutdown" with Xen 4.0.1 on RHEL5, with RHEL and Ubuntu PV domU, and
both shutdown just fine. It also works for Windows 2008r2 domU with

Is your domU Debian? If yes, I suggest you try using RHEL/Centos and
Ubuntu as PV domU, at least to make sure whether the bug is on Xen
side or domU side.

As a temporary workaround, you should be able to run "xm destroy"
instead of "xm shutdown".

You can try searching the archive (IIRC 1024x768 is possible), but the
general answer is don't bother. Don't use domU GUI for anything other
than admin purposes. Use some kind of remote acess (NX/VNC/X
forwarding/rdesktop) setup on domU, and accessed by client (which
could be dom0 or other machines on the network) to get the resolution
you need.
