Cheers, just tried as of a few minutes ago and it's still with me..

kernel BUG at include/asm/xor.h:633!

After install was done there were also a few errors on start up
(something about /dev/map ).

Just had it complete an install in an hour. Which is better.  Ran some
tests.

wget over local net ( layer 2 switched no routing hops ) of
openoffice-core RPM (77MB) :

100%[====================================>] 80,504,759     1.52M/s
ETA 00:00 

932.47 KB/s

The same test from domain-0 :

100%[=================================================================================================================>] 80,504,759    10.03M/s    ETA 00:00

10.40 MB/s.

That's a very big difference. Normally I'd say it was duplex problem but
I can't check that because of this :

[root localhost ~]# ethtool eth0
Settings for eth0:
No data available

Sure, will try and reproduce.  You know, I think it happened last week
with two guest installs at the same time.  Will check.
