Got it:

/usr/lib/util-vserver/vserver.start includes the following function:

## Usage: prepareInit <vserver-directory>
function prepareInit
    pushd "$1/vdir" >/dev/null
    case "$INITSTYLE" in
            { find var/run  ! -type d -print0; \
              find var/lock ! -type d -print0; } | xargs -0r $_CHROOT_SH rm
            $_CHROOT_SH rm .autofsck forcefsck 2>/dev/null || :
            : | $_CHROOT_SH truncate fastboot  2>/dev/null || :
    popd >/dev/null

A symlink to a directory is not a directory...

Not sure how to fix it, especially considering that typically the host is
stable or oldstable even if specific guests run unstable.
