That was the ticket. I was able to provision a new VM with two
interfaces, however, the vifs were at MTU 1500 so I still have work to
do. :)

I use eth1 on the dom0's as storage-only interfaces. As such, they'll
never be used by a domU, so I don't bother bridging them.

If I run into more problems, I'll be sure to include the output from
those. Thanks again, that /bin/true was the ticket. :)
