           Summary: xend fails silently if /var/log/xen not present
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: wosc+xen@xxxxxxx

If the directory /var/log/xen is not present, xend does not start (when started
with  "/etc/init.d/xend start" or "xend start"). It does not give an error
either.  It spawns the sub-daemons (xenconsoled, blktapctrl etc.) but otherwise
dies without a sound whatsoever.

When running SrvDaemon.py directly (which disables fork/daemonize) it starts
just fine, so I suspect there is an error somewhere in the initialization of
the logging system -- unfortunately said error is not (visibly) handled,
leaving the user without feedback about what's going wrong.
