pl_mom is a non-critical service, you are probably fine with ignoring
this for now.

Mostly for Steve, here is what I found:
[root at planet9 log]# ls /vservers/
lost+found pl_netflow vserver-reference

This may be because the PlanetLabConf entries used by pl_box are out of
date with the live ones. How to synchronize PlanetLabConf entries with a
private setup hasn't been figured out yet, and a workaround was put in
its place (see the *.sql file in the pl_box) setup. I can correct that,
but it might not be the correct fix for the slices problem.
slices-0.5 looks fine on the server, too.
