Hello Panagiotis and list,

it seems a solution came up to run Erlang 14B in a Jail. 

A few minutes ago, Michael from the Erlang tribe provied a quick patch for 
Erlang 14B to disable the checks causing the issue with erlang 14B in Jails.

Here's his quick patch:

>        s->mod_time = current_time(g); /* Note activity */

He also announced to make a better patch in a few days. Also the Erlang 
folks might offer a future option to disable the check or provide another 
possibility to propperly run Erlang and Erlang programs (such as ejabberd) 
in a Jail.

Hope this helps

kind regards
