I guess you should avoid to set this for containers. You can do this
by inspecting the environment variable 'container', which is set to 'lxc'
in our case.

You can also try to set TERM in the container config file:

lxc.environment: TERM=linux

Does that solve you problems? Maybe we should set that by default?

I have done a quick test with OpenVZ, and I get the same error with openvz.
