Thread-topic: xend internal error on 4.0.0-rc6-pre
With Xen 4.0.0-rc6-pre on Fedora 12, I see the following error when trying to 
start xend:

# python -V
Python 2.6.2
# xend start
ERROR Internal error: Could not obtain handle on privileged command interface 
(2 = No such file or directory)
Traceback (most recent call last):

    xc = xen.lowlevel.xc.xc()
xen.lowlevel.xc.Error: (1, 'Internal error', 'Could not obtain handle on

This looks very similar to this existing, open bug:


It appears this bug was opened 2009-03-21 but the status still shows as 'NEW'.  
Does anyone have more info on this?   Is there a workaround?

Thanks in advance,

PS, here is my Xen/Linux info:
