Indeed. It sounds like a problem within the program. Something's causing
a file descriptor to not be opened, and the program isn't performing
sufficient error-checking. Cuz I know one can open file descriptors at will!
Or perhaps your VE has maxed out the number of FDs it's allowed to have?
Check the /proc/user_beancounters and see if anything there is happening
to shed light on whether the failure is VE-related.

For a CDROM, iso9660 is usually appropriate. Are you sure that that
module is already loaded in the hardware node? A lot of distros leave
iso9660 as a module and VEs cannot load kernel modules.
Do a "modprobe iso9660" in the HN, to ensure that the module is loaded.
Then try mounting the CD in the VE.
