I'm using libvirt 0.6.2 to create a Xen guest with a network type interface (see XML below). When the guest is defined, the interface is converted to an ethernet type interface. If the guest is started, the interface is then converted to a bridge type interface.
This sounds bad :-) Can you provide the output of 'xm list --long hd_domain'
immediately after defining it, and then again immediately after starting
the guest.

Here's the whole create process. Probably more than you needed, but included for clarity ;)

# virsh list --all
 Id Name                 State
  0 Domain-0             running

# virsh define hd_domain
Domain hd_domain defined from hd_domain

# xm list --long hd_domain
Error: Domain 'hd_domain' does not exist.
Usage: xm list [options] [Domain, ...]

List information about all/some domains.
-l, --long Output all VM details in SXP
  --label                        Include security labels

I guess you muyst be using an old Xen without inactive domain
support ? Would this be RHEL-5 Xen by chance ?  If so, can you
also provide the /etc/xen/$GUESTNAME  config file at this point

Yes, this is with RHEL 5 - I meant to mention that in my original mail.

# cat /etc/xen/hd_domain
name = "hd_domain"
uuid = "f99fd6b6-1434-4bc2-88e0-1ed9c8c6f8e9"
maxmem = 128
memory = 128
vcpus = 1
kernel = "/tmp/default-xen-kernel"
ramdisk = "/tmp/default-xen-initrd"
on_poweroff = "destroy"
on_reboot = "restart"
on_crash = "destroy"
vfb = [ "type=vnc,vncunused=1,vnclisten=,keymap=en-us" ]
disk = [ "file:/tmp/default-xen-dimage,xvda,w" ]
vif = [ "mac=00:11:22:33:44:aa" ]
