you can compile in and enable the vserver debugging system
(kernel side support) will give you plenty of messages
once enabled too but if you 'know' what you're looking
for, it's probably easy to find ...
but I'm still pretty sure that it is simpler to find the
issue in an strace or maybe even in a debug log with
reasonably high debug level ...

copy the entire system into a vserver and start it there
(after allowing for broadcasts and binding to the broadcast
address), then, if it fails too, run a single tests (maybe
automated?) to do the necessary steps, strace both apps
(the one on the working server and the one inside the guest)
then compare the straces (with a little script maybe) and
look for differences (i.e. syscalls which succeed in one
trace but fail in the other, sections left out in either
