  this is being worked on. At this point you need to run 'xm create $vm_name'
as root to start an halted domain.

  That's normal. The state of the system is also tied to the state of the
disk images. If you were to restore, halt, and restart from the restore point
you would just run off filesystems in a different state and nearly garanteed
to corrupt the disk images.
