I don't think bind mounts can change the effective permissions. If I mount -o bind,nodev /dev /mnt, mount shows the "nodev" option, but /proc/mounts doesn't and devices like /mnt/null and /mnt/zero work as expected. That said, you probably count mkdir /home/var with the right permissions and then mount -o bind /home/var /var/tmp to get what you are after. In any case, dpkg installed suid binaries do get scrubbed after they aren't in use, so you only have to worry about suid binaries you've created yourself. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
