The changes to xenbus mean that we call vif up/down via hotplug, and our hotplug script is hardcoded to call the bridge script. Probably it ought to pull stuff out of xenstore to work out what to do, but that's not implemented right now.

One fix would be for you to just hack the hotplug script. Another, slightly better, way would be to grep around in xend's config script to find out what script should be run, and call that. We might even take that as an interim patch.
