After upgraded to 6.0.4, free -m makes no sense

I'm running Debian 6.0.4 on an OpenVZ container. The container has 1GB of memory (2GB burst). This is with a very good provider who has not changed anything in the last few hours.

Here is what free -m says:

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:         10984      10911         73          0        248       3810
-/+ buffers/cache:       6852       4132
Swap:         3813        122       3691
What? Here is free -g:

             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:            10         10          0          0          0          3
-/+ buffers/cache:          6          3
Swap:            3          0          3
I know my VPS doesn't have 10GB of RAM :-)

In 6.0.3, it said 2GB total - which is what I would expect under OpenVZ.

Did something radically change in 6.0.4?

free -m works as expected on my normal 6.0.4 installation.

(Just so you know distro is OK; clean install to a root partition, /home & swap on seperate partitions.)
