Bug#569544: pbuilder create fails trying to mount proc

Package: pbuilder
Version: 0.196
Severity: important


The command issued was: "pbuilder create --basetgz /home/chroot/i386new.tgz --distribution sid --architecture i386"
Everything seems to go well downloading and validating but finishes with:
I: Extracting libuuid1...
I: Extracting mount...
I: Extracting util-linux...
I: Extracting zlib1g...
W: Failure trying to run: chroot /var/cache/pbuilder/build/29510/. mount -t proc proc /proc
E: debootstrap failed
W: Aborting with an error
I: cleaning the build env
I: removing directory /var/cache/pbuilder/build//29510 and its subdirectories

I have no special configuration, and of course /proc does exist :) so 
thanks in advance for any advice on how to fix this.

best regards,
