Why it wasn't removed I don't know... but you can back up the file somewhere else... and remove it... and if you have problems... you could copy it back.  I don't think any of that would be necessary but who knows.

No, the script (and its appropriate symlinks) is (re)created on every 
start (actually mount)
of a simfs-based container. It is a conversion process that should get 
rid of it, unfortunately
vzctl doesn't do it currently, so has to be done manually. Feel free to 
file a bug for vzctl.
