I have had time to test that myself now. I have created a second test case, 
where the jail is in /home/jail and thus resides on the same filesystem as 
/home/jailtest2/. The move (of the user folder jailtest2) does not change the 
ownership or the permissions of the files or directories (which is the correct 
As soon as the move has to be made across filesystems, the ownership is changed 
(however, permission bits are not changed). I'm going to file a bug report on 
the python project soon.
