What *exactly* do you mean by "/ is no longer mounted"? It seems to me
that it is kind of a silly statement because without a / I would say you
can't have a chroot.
I guess what you mean is that /etc/mtab or /proc/mounts or the mount
command no longer *lists* /. Is that it?
If it is, then somebody very simply will have to trace the cause of that
change. My suggestion: spend some actual time on tracing it instead of
waiting for other people to solve the mystery. If you suspect busybox,
then try building an image with the Lenny version of busybox.
