Hello Olivier,

sorry about posting my comments on jk_jailuser to the jailkit-users list, it 
really should have gone on this list

I've figured out the error. My /home is on a different filesystem than /srv, 
thus just creating a new hard link within the same filesystem will not work, 
the data really has to be copied to the other filesystem (creating a new hard 
link is what os.rename() does in python). Follow this thread in the mailing 
list for possible solutions:

When jk_jailuser isn't able to copy (or move) the home directory, there are 
some interesting follow-up effects:

1. /srv/jaily/home/jailtest (which is empty), has the following permissions:
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 10. Nov 22:05 jailtest

2. Thus running jk_jailuser for the second time produces:
myhost ~ # jk_jailuser -j /srv/jaily -v -s /bin/bash -m jailtest
user jailtest already exists in /srv/jaily/etc/passwd
user jailtest has a correct home directory and shell already
moving files from /srv/jaily/./home/jailtest/ to /srv/jaily/./home/jailtest/

3. Logging in as jailtest isn't possible of course, as chrootsh correctly 
checks the permissions of /srv/jaily/home/jailtest:
Nov 10 22:08:40 [jk_socketd] listening on socket /srv/jaily/dev/log with rates 
Nov 10 22:08:48 [login(pam_unix)] session opened for user jailtest by 
Nov 10 22:08:48 [jk_chrootsh] abort, path /srv/jaily/./home/jailtest/ is not 
owned 1006:100
Nov 10 22:08:48 [login(pam_unix)] session closed for user jailtest

There are probably a few more situations, where moving (or copying) the home 
directory isn't successful. One case I can think of is that the destination 
filesystem gets full in the middle of transfering the home directory, what 
should jk_jailuser do then?
