Thanks Simon, and sorry for the delayed reply.

I think I missed the sign that said 'don't panic' ... as it seems the problem 
was my patience.

I guess I didn't expect it to take approx. an hour. Letting it sit, it managed 
to progress. I guess this is just one of the side effects of running a domu 
from a file image on a raid1 when parity is being rewritten.

At least the dom0 didn't panic, which has occurred in the past.

Thanks for your assistance though.
