Yeps that's it,

xen-pciback.hide instead of pciback.hide works fine.

Hmm perhaps it would be nice to have some "autobind" option for devices in .cfg.
So you can let xend autounbind and bind pci and usb devices.
Or some scripting hooks like onbeforestart, etc.

Apart from not getting it to reboot, pvops seems to work fine at the 
moment :-)

Thx !
