Summary: openSSH chroot security settings faulty
Product: openSUSE 11.1
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1

Whenever i tried to setup a chroot environment with OpenSSH the security
settings for the user folder must be root or OpenSSH doesn't work, the only
solution for now is to either create subfolders in the users chroot folder
where the user can have write permissions or land them one step up in the
hierarchy and thus making them see other chroot folder which is not good.
I followed this Wiki page to the letter:
I have Swedish community users trying to set this up to with same result as me.
This thread takes up the same issue:
But the solution mentioned there is not acceptable because as it stats on the
Wiki you make one folder the chroot folder and then mapping the users home
folder relative to the chroot folder, in this scenario the users should get
write permissions to his own folder, but that is not possible, thus breaking
the functionality intended.
So the question is, is this a bug or is it designed to act like this?
Steps to Reproduce:
Done accordingly to this wiki entry: http://en.opensuse.org/OpenSSH
Gets a read only home folder root
Getting a writable home folder, where they can create on folder and upload
files directly to the root of their home folder.
