Is there any kernel message before reboot (/var/log/*), or is there some XEN 
message (xm dmesg (as long as it's still running))?

Maybe changing the syslog to write messages synchonously and putting messages 
on a 
synchronously writing filesystem would be helpful to capture the last messages. 
Maybe something like
while xm dmesg>>xen.log
  sleep 1 # or longer

will be helpful.

I'm not using file backends for XEN (yet); how did you configure those?
