I just encountered this after upgrading to 4.30 (from 4.26).

Using a chroot + daemonizing seems to be the problem, creating /dev/null
inside the chroot as a workaround seems to work.  However, 4.26 (and
probably other non-4.30 versions) worked without needing /dev/null
inside the chroot.

Using CentOS 5.4, glibc 2.5 so the daemon() function is available.
