I've narrowed the issue to the xend and xendomains daemons.

On one of my systems I was able to init 6 and init 0 no problem, then
suddenly I could not, when this occurred, CPU utilization was 100% on
one CPU on the host with the guest said either "Restarting System" or
"System Halted".   After some investigation I found that if I
restarted the xend and xendomains services I could once again init 0
and init 6.

Thanks for this tip, I have signed up on the centos-virt list.
