openSUSE 10.3 recently shipped on a 2.6.22 kernel with Xen 3.1. I'm 
guessing the ubuntu-xen kernel you've tried has come from the recent 
release (gutsy I think) of ubuntu. What were the bugs you were seeing 
in the ubuntu kernel?

There's always the enterprise distros worth looking at also. Both SLES 
10 (2.6.16) and RHEL 5 (2.6.18) are based on older kernels but will 
incorporate a lot of fixes and drivers backported.
