How much memory does your dom0 have? ie. what's your dom0_mem= option for 
xen.gz in grub.conf.
Have you tried different values? ie. 2GB, 4GB, 8GB? 

Also setup a serial console so you can figure out if it's the Xen hypervisor or 
dom0 kernel crashing:

and more info about troubleshooting pvops dom0 kernels (also an example about 
serial console with pvops dom0):

Those should help.
