Can you try with 3.0-rc2 or later? There were some fixes added.

Also, there were some VGA patches that didn't make it into 3.0

but that are in:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/konrad/xen.git stable/2.6.39.x


Failing those. Please post the logs to the xen-devel mailing list with
the details of the problem including the kernel details.

Don't be afraid to post to xen-devel, but do read:
