Actually, you've probably got another copy of "proc" mounted there.
Try "umount /var/chroot/user/testuser/proc", and see if that fixes
It's not possible to create hardlinks across different filesystems, so
in particular you can't create hardlinks to "/proc" files in your real
filesystem. (Try it, and you'll get an "Invalid cross-device link"
error or something similar.)
