known issue with vga text mode (32bit only, 64bit works ok).  vga window
at 0xc0000 isn't mapped correctly.  Workaround: drive the card in gfx
mode.  Either kernel mode setting or vesafb (use something like
vga=gfx-1024x768x16 on the *xen* kernel command line).

Unfortunately, both the kernel mode setting and using vesafb cause the X session to crash on that particular machine. So it is useful to know, but not that helpful in this particular case.
