	Fixed. The problem is that the scripts in /etc/xen/scripts assume
that /bin/sh is /bin/bash, and in my case it was /bin/dash. So the file
/var/log/xen-hotplug.log was full of:

trap: 53: ERR: bad trap

	I had seen it before, but I forgot to mention it on my report. My
bad. Changing /bin/sh to /bin/bash fixed it like a charm. Anyway, the
scripts should (IMHO) be modified to take this into account, so no one gets
into the same problem.

	I'm going to post a bug on the BTS so the crawlers pick it and it's
available for online searches. I'll post more details there :-)
