Hmmm... mysterious.  This is the same box I am using and the
same bits.  Perhaps a baud rate problem on the serial port?
The hack I mentioned assumes 115200.  (This can be configured
via the EFI shell.)  When I am running Linux, I use
"console=ttyS0,115200" but I don't know if specifying a
different baud rate for Xen/ia64 will work (yet).

Otherwise could be different firmware versions, but one wouldn't
expect that to cause this kind of a problem.

When you boot real Linux with the same console= are you getting
boot output on the VGA display?
