           Summary: Incorrect PTY returned when querying for console for
                    running DomU in python wrappers
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux-2.6
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Tools
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: derek@xxxxxxxxxxx

Xen version: 3.0.3 32 bit from tarball
OS Version: Fedora Core 6 (with stock Xen ripped out)
Platform: Pentium D 3.2 stepping 2 with 8G on PAE kernel tarball. 
Extra: Built an initrd after xen install, starting domains programmatically
using xen.xm.main(['foo', 'create', configFile])

Same code runs no issue on Fedora Core 4, Xen 3.0.1

I am running into a bug which looks like an off by one, but is kind of
inconsistent, when I query xen.lowlevel.xs socket for the console associated to
a given domain id. Inconsistent results (usually, but not always, the PTY
returned is the actual pty + 1). This is hard to replicate too, as it only
seems to happen occasionally for me (happened all day yesterday, but not for a
week before that). Dom0 reboots seem to fix it too.
DomUID=44 #For example. The id of the dom. From xm list
import xen.lowlevel.xs as xs
print "PTY RETURNED IS:",pty

Large numbers of domains starting and stopping seem to trigger the bug (ie, a
dozen or so DomUs, starting and stopping out of order).

If I am missing some best practice for querying the correct pty, please feel
free to let me know both that I am an idiot, and the correct method ;)
