bind-chroot works fine.  The question is not if it work but if you are 
configuring it to work in that environment.  With SELinux running and bind in 
a chroot environment it is allowed to write to slave/ and data/ (this is 
going from memory haven't had to setup bind-chroot in some time)  As long as 
you setup your logging to data/ it will log everything and not complain.  
Only when you setup a custom server do you have issues.
