Yes, don't remember which package.

Oh, so maybe you are on squeeze, but simple the /etc/issue has been replaced ?

what do you see if you do a :

dpkg -l

do you see squeeze packages or wheezy packages ?

Welcome to the Proxmox Virtual Environment. Please use your web browser to 
configure this server - connect to: 


Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 \n \l 

But I've no idea where this comes from. 

Does PVE also write the Debian string? I'm backporting all wheezy 
packages from PVE to squeeze.
