[Xen-users] RFH: Windows2003+GPLPV packet-receive breaks after some time (Xen 3.4.3 amd64)


one of our domU Windows system with GPL-PV driver regularly has problems
with its network connection: After some time the VM does not receive any
packets anymore. It's seems to be only a problem with receiving, since sending
ARP packets still works:

        tcpdump -i vif147.0 -n arp | grep -FA1 --color XXX.X.71.77

If I try to ping the domU from the dom0, I only see the request going to the
domU, but no answer:
        13:49:17.106405 arp who-has XXX.X.71.77 tell XXX.X.12.47

If I try to ping some host from the domU, I see the request leaving the domU
and the answer arriving for the domU, but no following ICMP messaged:
        13:48:37.569618 arp who-has XXX.X.22.12 tell XXX.X.71.77
        13:48:37.570002 arp reply XXX.X.22.12 is-at 00:16:3e:aa:ed:fa

We have saved the state of the VM to a file, which when restored puts the domU
back in the broken state.

We collected some information, but now are stuck on how to best proceed, since
we don't know enough of Xens and GPLPVs internal working.
Can we (or someone els) diagnose, why received packages are not properly 
Should we install the debug driver and what should we do when the problem next 
occurs. (I'm not afraid of debuggers and assembler, but only on Linux and not 
much with Windows)
