I'd go for -unstable. In reality, the stability is usually rather good.

I might be worth trying the native kernel from the demo cd just to check
it's not a kernel config issue, but I admit it's a bit of a long shot.

Also, it might be good to test a similarly configed native 2.6.15/14/12
to see if any of them fail in the same way as Xen -- that would give us
a big clue.
