Do you have a reference to the actual syntax you are using?

As usual with xend this syntax appears to be mostly undocumented...

http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_Configuration_File_Options seems to suggest
that you can give the ioports multiple times, rather than the more usual
approach of using an array. Whereas
http://cmrg.fifthhorseman.net/wiki/xen seems to suggest that an array is
how it is done. Perhaps the xen.org wiki is just badly worded and it is
array based.
