   Thank you. That makes it. I'm using a simpler form like:

    Ah, you're right. Cut and paste betrayed me :) However perhaps the
error message may be misleading (it made me think the error was the
volume, no the given virtual disk).

   Very  interesting. I'd need some time to read it through.

   I'm checking the libxl code and I'd like to pass more arguments to
the script. I'll modify libxl/libxl_freebsd.c to do so. I'll let you
know my experiments.

   Thank you,
