I think we had this topic before. I don't remember which type of
virtualization it was that we traced this back to. It was certainly not
hardware accelerated, must have been something like Virtuozzo or openVZ.
That's why I wrote "depending" on the type.
Generally it should be safe and I remember that I was quite surprised
that it messed things up.

Good idea. Or if he's not comfortable with that, send it directly to
Geoff or me or stop by our IRC channel and ask for someone to help you
troubleshoot it.
