  The /proc filesystem contains information about currently running processes
and various kernel internals.  It doesn't copy like a normal directory because
it isn't one.
  I don't really have a clue as to why your servers are dying unless you are
somehow preventing them from seeing something they need in the /proc
subdirectories.  As far as I know you can only create one instance of /proc (I
suppose you could modify the source to make more copies, but that is left as an
excersize for the reader).
  I would suggest allowing your servers to start normally (without chrooting
them) and see if things run as they're supposed to.
