Yes. The bug in 6.1-RELEASE has been fixed, however chances are high,
that FreeBSDs security team introduced some problems in 6.2-RELEASE that
can prevent ezjails from working correctly, I'm currently quite angry
about that since, ironically, I have been the one contacting them with
the issue that prompted the "fixes".

I will investigate in how far the problems apply to ezjails users and
put an update on ezjails project page and send an email to this list.
