I never had problems w/ networking between domUs (besides the already
described kernel crashes when sending too many multicasts/broadcasts on
a bridge with 8+ domU interfaces attached), but "physical" networking
seems to be broken for dom0 when starting xend.  veth0 then has the MAC
address of my NIC and eth0 got the MAC address FF:FF:FF....  It does not
work unless I reload my NIC hw module.
