Still not getting any traction on resolving the FC5, Xen and iptables
crash problem. Filed a bugzilla, posts on Fedora forums, this forum, etc.
The instability of released, official FC xen packages is getting
frustrating to the point I'm considering another distro, virtualization
solution or both. BTW, the "problem", whatever it is, appears to be fixed
in FC6.

Short of waiting for FC6, anybody have any ideas on resolving this?


I attached a serial console and captured the following output:
