Description

Joyent fixed an issue whereby profile and tick probes may not fire within zones.

Described here: http://mail.opensolaris.org/pipermail/dtrace-discuss/2011-July/009155.html

The initial paragraph provides a nice summary: DTrace tick and profile probes enabled by non-privileged users will only fire within contexts they are allowed to instrument, resulting in missed firings.
