first, try with 2.6.12 and vs2.0-rc4+ (tools 0.30.207),
then make some 'basic' tests with the Lustre FS regarding
namespaces, it might be, that it doesn't like them ...
you can for example create/configure a guest to use chroot
and avoid the namespaces ...
it is also possible that the networking? part of Lustre
is not able to bypass the chbind security ...
anyway, if you know lustre details and/or are interested
in making this work, then we can investigate/fix it ...
but it will require some work (mainly testing/setup) on
your side (AFAIK it wasn't tested with lustre yet) ...
