Bug Description

Binary package hint: lxc

The lxcguest package is causing /var to be overmounted so that the container's parent process can't read the utmp entries to tell when to shut the container down.

lxc (0.7.4-0ubuntu6) natty; urgency=low

  * debian/fstab.lxc: comment out all entries. /sys gets mounted anyway,
    and we need to not overmount /var because otherwise the container parent
    won't see utmp, can't see the container is shutdown, and won't kill
    the init. Note that when expected kernel functionality to help clean up
    container reboot and shutdown comes, these can be uncommented.
