when a filesystem (not the harddisk itsef) switches
to read-only, it usually does so because there was some
kind of filesystem corruption or the underlying device
got flakey in some way (of course, could as well be a
kernel bug)

I doubt it has anything (directly) to do with Linux-VServer
or your guest setup, I'd suggest to consult the host logs
and the 'dmesg' output, it might shed some light on the
reason for switching to read-only ...

if your hard disk actually switches to read-only (and
not the filesystem) then you might have a (more) serious
problem with your hardware ....
