Well, AFAIK, Virtuozzo (the VPS system they have) should keep it 
completely separate. My libc shared library should be completely 
separate from other's. I read Section 6 of the FAQ you pointed me to, 
and they offered some suggestions. The FAQ said to actually increase the 
values of several options. I'm going to set up a test list with random 
users at known domains and see what happens.

Thanks for your help. I'll keep this list updated. (I'm sure everyone is 
on the edge of their seat).
