I've run into the very same problem. My fix was to compile
ipvsadm myself. As far as I can tell, Debian does some hefty
patching before compilation (can be seen in the source package on
packages.debian.org). As to why: I don't know. If switched to
compiling all the stuff that's delicate myself, only using the
packaging system for the base system and "foolproof" stuff.
