Today I've managed to escape from a jail by accident and ended up with
root access to the host's filesystem.

Here's what I did:

* Using ezjail for managing my jails
* Verified in FreeBSD 9.0-BETA3 and 9.0-RC3
* This works only when I use sudo, and cannot reproduce if I execute
everything as root

I cannot see how the use of sudo would be relevant -- the fundametal issue merely requires the vnode of the directory in question to be moved (not copied) past the jail's root vnode. Could you give a bit more detail about how you came to believe that sudo is necessary?
