I pointed out the same thing a few months ago.
I believe I was told that its in the documentation, I just needed to
know where to look.
The reason it fails is that if chroot is used, the system can no longer
access /etc/passwd (since / has changed)...
I spent hours adding debug and such all over the code to try and find
where it wasn't mapping the uid's.
