Not a lot to go on! 

It'd be useful to know what xen version you're using (bk changes | head), 
and what configuration your running when you get this above behaviour (e.g. 
how many domains running, h/w spec, etc). Would also be useful to know 
precisely the steps you can take to cause the problem to see if we can 
reproduce it.

If you can attach a serial line to the machine (and perhaps add "noreboot" 
to the xen command line) you might be able to get some output...
