I use mount_null and have no problem with it. You need create dir in
each user home and use mount_null for mount your chrooted dir
with created directories as mount points .
So you need add many lines in your /etc/fstab file .
I think that words in manual about beta concern writing in directory
that uses mount_null. I don't use write and it seems that you don't
need write too. So use this fs type ( set in fstab "ro" option for this
And read man for mount_null.
