Hi!

I think it's time to contact the author the chroot command for linux and
talk with him about fixing this bug in the choot command to minimalize
things which are different in linux than in other unix opterating systems.

[I have added Rick Sladkey's address from my chroot(2) man page to into
the "Cc:" field.]
