Yep, there is a problem with the pivot root and the umount of the 
different mount point in the old rootfs.
This problem appears with some configuration (I didn't figure out which 
one yet), I did a hot fix, which is more a workaround than a real fix, 
(I didnt't understand where is coming the real problem).

As soon as I find the culprit, I will release a 0.6.6 version to fix 
that as the 0.6.5 is bogus.

In the meantime, if you wish to test, I attached the patch to this email.

Thanks for reporting the problem.
