But how are you causing xm to work?  Are you running different daemons
than the standard recommendation?  Different rc.d files?  I would think
you'd need the old rc.d files from before the xm/xl change.

Do you mean that on startup, the xl-based xendomains script that is part
of the xentools42 package causes "xl start" to be fired off for all
domains at once, rather than how "xm start" somewhat causes the next to
wait, perhaps by waiting until it's mostly started to return?

If so, it sounds like this should be on the list of things to be fixed.
