Yes, that's exactly what I get after my quick research %), thanks for
made it all clear.

I dont enforce you (may be there are some other issues with this), but
as I can see, it's not necessary to stop booting with fatal error when
you meet something readonly inside /var/run. Anyway please say your
decision: is this a bug which will be fixed in future, or not? (I
suppose Ola need it to know what to do with bug I reported to BTS).

As for my situation, I just mounted all I need in /mnt/something and
write init script inside vserver, wich creates symlinks from /var/ to
mounted dirs. Looks like it works fine =)

Thanks for reply and for utils-vserver =)

Regards, Alexander.
