I think you mean no vnc *viewer* is automatically launched. The server is 
built in to "qemu-dm -M xenpv ..."/xen-vncfb, etc. I've had a similar problem 
on fedora 8 with PV guests since xen 3.1.2. Hvm guests launch a viewer 
automatically, PV guests do not, regardless of the vnc/vncunused/vncdisplay 
vars. However, the domain is running (see xm list) - I just have to connect a 
viewer manually on the expected port. If you don't know what port to expect, 
do a 'virsh dumpxml domainname', and look at the port= value in 
the 'graphics' stanza.
