This happens only if you have a IPv6 address on an interface not visible
within the vserver, because of a bad assumption of some netlink code in
the glibc. This is fixed in recent versions of linux-vserver by hiding
the IPv6 stuff. If you don't want to upgrade you can simply remove the
IPv6 addresses from the interfaces not visible in the vserver (most of
the time this means lo).
