At one point xl had a bug with handling spaces in the vif specification,
which might cause ip= to not take affect. I thought it was fixed, but
perhaps not?

Do you see an "ip" node under the vif backend device in xenstore?

Can you try dropping the spaces in your configuration file?

I expect that the .2.128 comes from routing_ip() in the vif-nat script.
However this hasn't changed recently and should behave the same under xl
as it did under xm so obviously something is up.

If it's not the problem above then you might need to add some additional
logging to the vif-nat script to figure out why it isn't accepting your
ip setting.
