I'm seeing this error as soon I as start a second domU.  Like you, I've
found no useful information, at all.

I took a peek at the source code, which was a mistake: now I'm blind.

It's a head scratcher, all right.  I have no idea what it means, so I'm
reduced to tinkering with the config files, including lowering memory
usage for my one working domU.  Haven't tried it yet, though.

Anybody else run into this?  Tips?
