A few months ago (before the 1.2 release) I had a similar problem: I'd do lots 
of file IO (big copies) and lots of swapping and sometimes processes like find 
would segfault due to a kernel null pointer dereference.  Perhaps this is the 
same problem again.

At the time, we decided it was probably a latent Linux bug and not 
Xen-specific but I haven't managed to provoke it on native Linux.
