Thanks very much Dietmar,

My bad! Turns out those few lines of code shouldn't run in an OVZ/LXC

Your comments prompted me to compare the v13.0 initscript. In that there
is a test for console support before those lines.

I was under the impression that the init script hadn't been updated for
Jessie (as we moved to systemd). I've reinstated the test and will
continue testing.

Thanks again for your input and apologies on wasting your time.
