I would check for two things
- take a look at the vrpm script and make sure that
'chmod 0600 /vservers' is there ...
check the permissions below /vservers they should
allow read and execute for root ...
- remove (if present) the files
if both does not work/match, please install strace
and make a strace -f vrpm/rpm available ...
