I'm running xen3.4.0 , and while using windows 2003 x64 and GPLPV (up to - I keep running into the following kernel error message in dom0:

Did you try another Xen version. Xen 3.4.1 should work better.

Installing xen 3.4-testing as we speak.
This bug has been haunting me since 3.0, so I have little hope it'll be fixed..

I can reproduce this problem easily: boot up windows with GPLPV, disable the (pv) network interface in windows, enable it again, then disable it again. At this point, windows should hang - destroy the VM and this error pops up.

James, I think maybe some resource release operation cannot work in this
case. Hope it's help for you.
Any pointers as to where I can go dig?
Also, can anyone reproduce this? I would be amazed if it were just me.
