You should find (in the archives of that list) a longer discussion between 
me and Ross Walker (I think) about this problem (last year?). At that time 
it was clearly a bug in the Xen network setup script that I fixed with a few 
As I'm using mostly static addresses (dhcp was only used for experiments 
with kickstarting installations that were to be discarded, anyway) I don't 
know if the same problem still exists.
Another option might be to just forget about the Xen network script and do 
your own bridging which should then workaround this problem as well. I did 
that this year because of another problem with the Xen network script. There 
should be a later discussion about how to do this from this year.
