That someone would be me :) The problem was finally isolated to a
faulty DRAC. Once the VMs were moved off to another server (non-DELL,
same spec and config, except for DRAC and RAID) things quickly fell in
place. The main sysadmin is a kick-ass tech who is available even
outside their US office hours. Only catch, he is usually available
only over irc. In my case, once I actually got hold of him, he fixed
the issues within 15 mins.

FWIW, I'm paying US $7 /mo for a 4096MB/60GB/3TB on OpenVZ. It is my
test box, one that fits my budget.
