Looks like deliver doesn't chroot at all if you did chrooting by  
using /./ in the home directory. Since deliver doesn't work that  
great chrooted anyway (can't send bounces by running sendmail), maybe  
this is a good thing.

This happens only if it the source storage creation succeeds. So  
you're moving user's home directory also?

Anyway, I don't think I'll be changing any of this code in v1.0  
branch. But the subscription name changing .. yea, I'll fix that for  
v1.0. Guess I'll still have to put out rc31 :(
