Whonix qubes randomly shutdown, especially gateway

I’ve had qubes randomly shutting down on me lately. So far it’s been just qubes based on whonix templates and usually it is a whonix gateway. Usually the whonix workstation will not run without the gateway booting first, but what has been happening is a service goes offline,the workstation is still running but the gateway has crashed.

I had to make a change to my Xen configuration to get my machine to work with recent versions: No Qubes/VMs boot after latest updates - #32 by scallyob

It’s possible this problem started after making that change.

Here’s the log from the last crash from /var/log/xen/console/guest-sys-whonix.log:
