How freebsd-update broke my jails

I usually perform a binary update of my jails using

#freebsd-update fetch install #freebsd-update -d /usr/jails/basejail fetch install

This has worked for years. After doing it yesterday I was unable to login to any of my jails and pretty much everything broke. For example logging in using ssh gave logged the error: /bin/sh permission denied

After spending the day on it I have discovered that the upgrade process changed permissions on /usr/jails/basejail to 700. Changing it to 755 fixed everything.
