I added xen-devel to CC list.
Has anyone else seen this bug? 

Some questions:
- Is your Windows VM using PV drivers? if yes, which version? 
- Is it 32bit or 64 bit win7 ? 
- What exact Xen hypervisor version are you using? 
- Did you try with the latest Xen 4.1.3 release? 
- Do you get errors in dom0 kernel dmesg, or in Xen dmesg, or in xend log?
