Well, that is news.  I haven't tried to verify yet.

That isn't new behavior. They actually made that the default (I believe) a few years back.  See the following setting in /etc/vz/vz.conf:


This from the vz.conf man page:

   If  the value of this parameter is set to suspend or not set at all, vz initscript called with stop argument will try to suspend the running containers, instead of stopping them. Suspended containers when will be restored on vz start.  This  feature usually helps to decrease the reboot time. If a container fails to suspend, it will be stopped anyway.
