I don't know ShadowProtect, but I've seen that symptom myself when using
differencing disks.

Your understanding is correct AFAIK.

You might want to also check that the VHD image file contains a UUID:
From qemu-img I know that it was using an all-zero UUID, which then
failed some test in vhd-utils, leading to the VPC image being detected
as a raw file instead.

You also might want to try 'vpc' there, as that is the names as used by
QEMU. (I'm still using xen-4.1, so I don't have any xen-4.4 knowledge yet).
