If /boot is on another virtual drive, make sure it's the first one in
the VM's 'disk' listing (/etc/xen/foo).  I remember reading that Xen
gives only the first disk to pygrub as an arg.
/usr/bin/pygrub is a Python script.  Probably printing the 'file' var to
stderr before the line fsimage.open(file, get_fs_offset(file)) shows
what it's trying to open.
