This may have been my fault.  I can avoid this by actually mounting /run
as tmpfs (from the host, when constructing the jail).  This allows a
successful and sane upgrade:

+ echo Due to mounts in the chroot, /dev/shm can't be safely symlinked
to /run/shm.  Please correct this problem manually.

That said, some of the other problems I mentioned sound serious:  the
handling of hidden files in /dev/shm or /run/shm when moving things.
