Thank you.  I am posting from the target machine.  Once I cleared up my typing errors, it came right up.  I removed NetworkManager.  

While researching your descriptions, I found a new tool (for me).  
#ls /sys/class/net
lo  usb0  wlan0  xenbr0

You mentioned that it is unconventional to to have the bridge get the IPv4 address from DHCP.  Is it more conventional for the usb0 to get the IPv4 address?  What are the consequences of the difference?

To change it, would that mean swapping DHCP and manual between xenbr0 and usb0 and swapping their sequence?
