This might have something to do with general networking problems we've
had this week with domU's. Bringing up a domU shouldn't affect dom0's
access to the outside world unless there is some nasty bug. We though
thi sbug had maybe disappeared but perhaps it is still alive and
well. :-(

At least we think it was added this week, so there's not too much
changeset history to wade through.
