Yes, you are missing someting. :-)  XEN_LOCK_DIR is used for a number
of different things; but *only* "I am alive" init script files should
live in /var/lock/subsys.  (Presumably that's why it's a separate
directory to begin with.)  So the "proper" fix is to have the
xendomains script check for the existence of $XEN_LOCK_DIR/subsys and
use it if available.  See my original patch submission for more
details [1].

So, I've tested the packages and they work for me, let me know if you
have any problems. :-)
