Are you using a controller?  If you are not, then you should see one
flow, e.g.:

    [root at localhost ~]# ovs-ofctl dump-flows xenbr0
    Mar 30 09:18:55|00001|ofctl|INFO|connecting to unix:/var/run/openvswitch/xenbr0.mgmt
    stats_reply (xid=0x73515d7e): flags=none type=1(flow)
      cookie=0, duration_sec=68016s, duration_nsec=905000000ns, table_id=1, priority=0, n_packets=414970, n_bytes=46119909, actions=NORMAL

You will not see any other flows, because this flow handles all traffic.

If you are using a controller, then there are no default flows.

You characterize this as a problem.  Does that mean that something is
not working correctly?
