Should be fixed by cset 11672 on unstable.

Linux, by default, will only use the first 8 processors in the system.
What's NR_CPUS in your kernel config?

That's not good.  I'm optimistic that it was fixed by csets 11622 and
11624 of xen-unstable, but I've never been able to reproduce this
reliably enough to test.  Could you have another go, please?

Is this HVM guests using the vnc viewer?

Acoustic as in noise control, yes?  Why would you ever need to?
