I am experiencing some problems using the chroot() system call under
386/ix v2.0.?  The problem that I am experiencing is that the system
call does not execute as expected and does not return a useful error
number upon failure.  When running as root, if I do somthing like:


root is unchanged, but the return value indicates success.  Has anyone
else run into this problem?  Workarounds?
