So I've been running Xen on the desktop for a while.  It's been stable
on my Thinkpad, but likes to "randomly" seize up on my Dell at work.
Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of throwing myself at the
debugger and just reboot.  Often back into straight NetBSD.

Anyway.  Try reducing your dom0 memory size to 2GB or fewer.  X11 is
terribly upset if you don't do that:
 menu=Boot Xen:load /netbsd-XEN3_DOM0 bootdev=wd0a console=pc;multiboot /usr/pkg/xen42-kernel/xen.gz dom0_mem=2000M,max:2000M

Horray for signed 32-bit integers.
