Yes, that is right.

I ran "stress" when running the 2.6.18-4-xen kernel and it crashed
randomly. So I upgraded to Sid and the 2.6.20-1-xen-686 kernel, but
unfortunately it follows the same pattern. Actually now the computer
crashed as soon as i start to create DomU. But when i ran stress it
could run 5min/100% load without crashing, but as soon it comes to
creating a DomU it wouldn't last 30sec.

Sorry, but i forgot to create a prober bug report before i upgraded
to Sid. But if you still want it, I'll give as many information i
can via mail to the BTS.
