Well, don't know if it helps, but I had similar problems with cups in my
vserver - even the problems were not really vserver related as far as I
can tell. I think the main problem were insufficient access rights (in
/etc/cups/cupsd.conf). The Debian package is very restrictive.
During experimenting I upgraded the vserver to unstable since stable has
a pretty old cups version. Don't know if it would have worked for stable
with the same config. Did no carefull investigation.
Anyway, my situation was a bit different since I installed a printer
with network interface, so I didn't need the device inodes...

So check if you gave access rights from your config host for <Location
/> , <Location /admin> and <Location /jobs>. does not work in
a vserver, use the real vserver-IP. This is what worked for me at least...

Good luck,
