It depends on how you get the shell inside vserver.
I believe this would only happen with the current version of
the vserver script when you enter it from the root server, e.g.
vserver ... enter
vserver ... exec ...
If you run it from the inside ( any service that was originally started with
the "vserver ... start" command, e.g. you run a telnet or ssh service and login to it )
before running the forkbomb then the limits apply ok.
I think this is being rectified in the next version of the userland tools.
