This is the first time I've seen this issue and I have two dual CPU machines and two dual core machines, all running Fedora, two since FC2.

I've been running Amarok with the xen kernel all day.  No problems yet.  I'll try the base kernel again tomorrow.  Not big file moves across the LAN, just Amarok.

BTW, this is the first fresh install that xen worked "out-of-the-box".  I always had to fiddle with the network devices before I could function under xen, if at all.  So far, I cannot tell the difference between running xen or not...
