Yesterday (from a week old version of the tools/linx/xen) we could repeatedly:
    start test domain

    xm destroy it

Today, after updating everything, we have to stop and then restart xend in order to get xenconsole to work in each iteration. Any ideas?

Yes it appears that xenconsoled SEGVs under the following scenario:
  $ xm create -c dom1 # console auto attaches

in another shell while the console above is still attached:
  $ xm destroy 1

Console is still attached, if you press a key in the console xenconsoled dies.

Current workaraounds
  1. disconnect the console before you destroy
  2. restart xenconsoled before you create again.

I'll track down the issue, I thought it was fixed upstream but I guess not.

Fixed and pushed:
