Hummmmm, according to the config file, I too am using pygrub but I never see
the menu.

I tried the xm create command as you suggested but I still do not see the menu.

If I use virt-manager to make changes to the configuration, I see the
changes in /etc/xen/vm_name

I am now wondering if there is another config file some where that virt-manager
is writing to.

Am I missing something?
