I've integrated a small check in the util-verser init script

# Create the /var/run directories if neccessary
check_run_dirs() {
    for d in /var/run/vservers /var/run/vservers.rev /var/run/vshelper
        if [ ! -d $d ]; then
            mkdir $d
            chmod 0755 $d

I will send the patch to the debian maintainer - hopefully it gets

apt-get update ; apt-get upgrade should get you the updated packages

btw - while upgrading the
symlink was resetted to the debian default /var/lib/vservers
on some of my systems.
So check this link after upgrading, if your vservers base
is not /var/lib/vservers
