I'm currently running 3.0.4-1, but I've also had this problem before it.  On all of my machines, simply running xenstore-ls crashes the machine, every time.  I haven't been able to capture the Oops, but I have run xenstore-tool check and tried removing the tdb file and letting Xen regenerate it (both to no avail).  Is this normal?

Not normal!

My best guess is that you are hitting a BUG() in the xenstore kernel driver in dom0, which is fixed in 3.0.5. This BUG() is triggered if you have any fields in xenstore that are very long.
