A mailing list to discuss openSUSE features, not an authoritative
resource on functionality in any given openSUSE release...

That talks about upstream xen, not xen packaging in openSUSE.  xl/libxl
is the default, preferred toolstack in upstream Xen 4.1.x.

Well, our plan was to switch to xl/libxl in openSUSE12.1, but we
switched back to the legacy toolstack before 12.1 released.  In the end,
we didn't have time to ensure xl/libxl was baked enough serve as a
replacement for xm/xend, let alone ensuring the tools consuming libxl
(e.g. libvirt) were feature parity with the legacy toolstack
counterparts.  Hopefully we will have time to do this during
openSUSE12.2 development cycle.

BTW, I can reproduce your problem and will take a look as time permits.
