What version of lxc are you using?  The latest unstable version looks
like it should default to squeeze, with a separate lxc-lenny template

But, note that you should probably be using lxc-create, rather than
using lxc-debian directly.  Like this:

cat > /etc/lxc.conf << EOF

lxc-create -t debian -n vm103 -f /etc/lxc.conf

If your version still gives you lenny, you could try

SUITE=squeeze lxc-create -t debian -n vm103 -f /etc/lxc.conf

I'm working on a detailed guide for the Ubuntu packages.  I should have
a readable version sometime this week.  Some things will be different
from the Debian version, but it should be a decent starting point.
