Using vproc (thanks Herbert) I put uptime back into all context procs.
Then, following hints from strace, I put meminfo into all context procs.

For future reference: vproc -e /proc/uptime; vproc -e /proc/meminfo

I couldn't think of any huge security holes that would create - correct

appears to enter an endless loop - just repeating the root server and an
unnamed server over and over.

It did show /usr/local/etc/vservers/vservername.conf being opened. I was
using /etc/vservers/ for my config. I symlinked back to /usr/local and
the error changed - it wasn't actually looking for vserver-setup, just
the config file:

WARNING: can not find configuration, assuming legacy method

Thanks again for fantastic software - hope this helps!
