           Summary: too much output kills xenconsoled
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: pl@xxxxxxxxxx
                CC: hohnbaum@xxxxxxxxxx

To reproduce this, xm console into a domain.  I've found two very quick and easy
methods to exhibit the behaviour.

1. telnet <somewhere> chargen
2. yes 

Either one of these will dump you out of the console within seconds.  If you try
to reattach, you see:
xenconsole: Could not open tty `/dev/pts/1': No such file or directory

xenconsoled no longer shows up in the process list on dom0, and silently fails
if you try to restart it.  However, if you do a xm shutdown -a, wait for the
guest to shut down, and *then* try to bring xenconsoled back up, it comes up
