Thanks for the suggestion, but I suspect that locking wouldn't work
correctly in such an arrangement.

If you could tell the system to use a separate directory for the db
files and bind mount that directory among all the chroots, then
perhaps that would fix the locking problem (presuming the default
setup uses fs locks).

Thanks again
