The critical systems are fine, they happily run Vserver on Debian squeeze
with the official Debian packages.
But as you know, Vserver support is dropped for wheezy and I have to look
for alternatives, and the LiHas unofficial packages seems to be the best
alternative to official Debian support.
The problem is on a test system upgraded from squeeze to wheezy.

Right, there was a barrier flag set on /var on the host, no idea how it
got there, perhaps the upgrade from the squeeze version of util-vserver
to the LiHas version did something strange...

It seems to work now, thank you (for your help and for your great work
on Linux Vserver).
