It could simply be symlinks, couldn't it? I don't see what translator
could be started. All that is possibly a bit non-standard is that we use
chroot a lot in a secondary ext2fs (which is the one that is leaking,
the / one is not)

It's only receive rights, no send rights.

The actual check for existing translator is further inside
fshelp_fetch_root, the box->active check.
