Default problem with /etc/passwd entry ispconfig with jailkit 2.11

Hi I have a clean installation of ispconfig w/ jailkit on a new 9.10 system and I'm having some trouble with the chroot'ed /etc/passwd for ssh users.

The user line for the jailkitted user does not have the home directory listed

renesisssh@darkertek.com:~$ cat /etc/passwd

This causes issue with library calls like getpwuid(getuid())->pw_dir and getting the users home directory.

One example of this being an issue is irssi:

renesisssh@XXXXXXXXX:~$ irssi

** ERROR **: Couldn't create /.irssi directory

This should be trying to create $HOME/.irssi but ends up trying to create /.irssi instead

Any help is appreciated. thanks

Yeah, it's still a problem.

However, if you like to run irssi, you can enable perl in ISPConfig panel (system > server config > your_server > jailkit > Jailkit chroot app sections) and run irssi using command irssi --home=$HOME
