Not that I have come across. I've got three zones (global + 2 others) running permanently. My home directory is constantly mounted on two of them, and periodically on the third. Both the non-global zones have several loopback-mounted filesystems in very heavy use and at least from my point of view the performance has been quite good. James C.
