Perhaps something's gone wrong due to your bridging setup. Have you adjusted
the Xend network and vif-bridge scripts to do the right thing for your setup?
If not, Xend will be trying its own bridge setup and possibly confusing thins
as a result...
If not, you might want to a) try starting Xend without any preconfigured
bridges to see if that works and then b) adapt the scripts to suit your setup
