unbound 1.9 failing on debian

A few of my deb and dev machines upgraded to unbound 1.9,
which completely failed.

After some effort I confirmed that it is calling chroot("/etc/unbound")
and therefore is unable to read /var/lib/unbound/root.key and thus exits.

There is no chroot setting in unbound.conf (including in its includes).

I was forced manually to downgrade back to 1.8.1 to get things to work

Is that default chroot(2) call an upstream change?
