Package: xen-utils-common
Version: 3.0+hg11292-2
Severity: serious
Justification: breaks unrelated services

Freshly installed amd64 etch system.

When running /etc/xen/scripts/network-bridge start, the system becomes
completely unreachable from the network.
Running ifconfig, I can see eth0 (which is the virtual interface now if
I am correct), having the mac and IP address of the real eth0, and a
peth0 and xenbr0 both having no IP address and a mac address of
FE+(5 times :FF).

When I set the IP address of xenbr0 manually to the eth0 address,
networking works again. But I am not sure whether that's how it is
supposed to be.
