Apologies for the slow reply - it's the main office server so frequently
everyone is using it...!

Just stuck in a new kernel right now and so far it's holding up! Given
it a bit of provoking by compiling a kernel and rebooting some vservers
and no glitches so far

So I think you have done it!! Thanks!

Just note for anyone else using gentoo hardened - Daniel hasn't replied
yet, but it appears that you need a fairly recent util-vserver to work
with these kernels, but the most recent util-vserver and also dietc-lib
appear to need to be compiled with a *non hardened gcc*. There is a
remote possibility this is actually a bug in util-vserver...? Not
really qualified to offer a deeper opinion than that though... (Daniel
- if you didn't see my previous email - any chance you might consider
looking into it a little?)

Thanks all!
