I found this somehow strange behavior and I am reporting it
just to hear your opinions.
> lab# jail -c name=asd persist
> lab# jail -c name=asd.asd persist
asd is interpreted as jail asd.asd
> lab# jail -c name=asd.asd.1 persist
> jail: jail 1 already exists
1 is interpreted as jail 1
This has to do with the fact that a numeric name is interpreted as jid
and this breaks the dot-seperated hierarchical jails concept.
I find this behavior somehow strange. Is it intended or it's bug?
Thanks for your insights, Nikos
