Ispconfig3 site cron not executing

When setting up a website in Ispconfig3 I wanted to run a cron job (shell script) for the site (setup under Sites -> Cron jobs) but the job did not execute. When examining the /var/log/auth.log I found lines like these:

Mar 22 10:31:01 servername jk_chrootsh[28726]: abort, homedir ‘/var/www/clients/client6/web284’ for user web284 (5015) does not contain the jail separator <jail>/./<home>

Mar 22 10:31:01 servername jk_chrootsh[28725]: abort, homedir ‘/var/www/clients/client1/web283’ for user web283 (5014) does not contain the jail separator <jail>/./<home>

The solution was to just add a dummy ssh user (using Jailkit as Chroot shell) in Ispconfig3 for the website.
I haven’t verified but I suspect the issue could be caused by the fact that the system originally was set up under Ubuntu 12.04 (LTS) and recently I did a do-release-upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04.
