Can you paste the output of brctl show? I doubt the built-in
network-bridge works for vlan interfaces as it involves some interface
renaming (e.g. eth0 -> peth0).

Which interface did you run ethereal on?

For starters, for complex configurations like this I find it easier to
simply use the OS configuration scripts to setup bridge/vlans (on
redhat this would be /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-*) and
comment-out nwtroking scripts on /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp.

After that, I'd test whether vlan works before throwing in bridge and
Xen to mix. For example, I'd create eth0.100 on top of eth0, and test
it. If it works, I create br100 on top of eth0.100 and move the IP
address to br100. After it works, I tell domU to use br100 as bridge.
