[Vserver] interpretation of igneg_nice (Mailscanner not starting up)

Dear all,

The daemon mailscanner (http://www.mailscanner.info/) is not starting up
during the boot process of a vserver using the original script inside
vserver's /etc/init.d/, linked from /etc/rc2.d for sure ;-)

Changing the relevant lines from

/usr/bin/nice -$run_nice start-stop-daemon --start --quiet \

   --exec $DAEMON >/dev/null 2>&1

to

start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --nicelevel $run_nice \
   --exec $DAEMON >/dev/null 2>&1

at least fixes the problem during the startup of the vserver. But as
Mailscanner uses to restart itself periodically, it stops running at
this moment.

I don't prefer to fix all calls as shown above to stay compatible with
future updates. Google led me to these pages:

   -> http://www.tgunkel.de/it/software/doc/linux_server
   -> http://linux-vserver.org/linux-vserver_administrators_guide
   -> http://linux-vserver.org/Caps+and+Flags

I tried the line "IGNEG_NICE" in /etc/vservers/mail/flags as well as the
line "CAP_SYS_NICE" in /etc/vserver/mail/bcapabilities. But both options
didn't lead to success, yet. Has anybody an idea? Btw, we are talking
about 2.6.17.7-grsec2.1.9-vs2.0.2-rc26.

kind regards, thanks in advance,
   Thorsten
