Got a similar script here, which das exactly the same. It's actually a shell

That sounds familiar. Try to delete /var/lib/init.d/* *INSIDE* the vserver.
So for your case this might be:
$ rm -rf /vservers/test321/var/lib/init.d/*

Well as Herbert already stated, gentoo saves information about the started and
stopped services in /var/lib/init.d.
