Nope, that's perfectly normal, the point of chroot is to put in y a
'jail' usually used for security (say BIND/Apache/ftp, etc) hence it's
like you rebooted, you just don't get access to the normal stuff.

But just run two terminals (or console) one where your in chroot and
other where you can copy/edit stuff, it's much nicer then when we had to
reboot! =)
