    I have noticed something... well, strange in WHM.

    First, one day I logged into WHM and went to see Manage Shell Access section.
    There were three jailshells open (we mostly maintain hosted webs so in many accounts shells are closed until there is a need for them so I open them as needed) which I was SURE I haven't left opened last time. All jailshells, no bashes.

    I thought... OK... maybe I forgot...

    Yesterday I have seen two jailshells open again. One that was previously closed, and check this: we have a special custom chroot jail built for one account and this account wasn't in this chroot-jail shell as we put it, but in regular jailshell. Of course, when I turned this jailshell off the account didn't go back to our custom jailshell.

    Boy, this is A FRIGHTENING thought. No one else has access to WHM but me.

    So, my question is:

    Is it even remotely possible that WHM 9.9.9 cPanel 9.9.9-R14 somehow reopens some jailshells by error? Maybe when doing scripts update or upcp?
