Well, I have to say sorry about this thread.
After some more experiments, I find that the syndrome is not specific to domU.
Both dom0 && non-xen system suffer from this issue, so this must be a
server fault and has nothing to do with xen.

This may have something to do with my weird setup (ext4 on loop image
mounted on server and exported through NFS).
But anyway this syndrome seems not fixed in recent kernel (3.6.11 tried).
