I've just tried too, but can't reproduce.  Are you sure you're running
the 1955 kernel in both dom0 and domU, and the hypervisor from that

Details would be helpful. :-)

Chris Wright recently found a bug that could result in bad network
performance amongst other things; but I'd expect that to affect dom0 as
much as domU.

What sort of config is this box?  SMP/HT etc?

There's no such thing as an eth setting for domU: the device is emulated
entirely in software.  For dom0, there is still a real physical device,
but the network scripts rename that to "peth0" and set up a virtual eth0
for bridging purposes.  You should still be able to run ethtool on the
peth0 device.
