Yes, yes it does indeed - thankyou! However, something else odd has happened. With the new kernel, I can start a normal domU as before, but a HVM domU doesn't do anything much: it appears to get created (interfaces created, appears in "xm list") but not do anything (doesn't accumulate any cpu time or start listening for VNC/create a SDL 'console'). I'm sure this is some other problem that's crept in in the meantime, perhaps even a userland problem with the tools, but it still prevents me upgrading :-/ -- Dan.
