Today, doing the update of a live Debian OS at the testing level, I have found
that the new image does not create the live user in the system.
Searching a bit more about that, it's the user-setup package issuing the
command "chpasswd -e -m newpasswd"
That does not work because the passwd package is changed, and the command
chpasswd has a test on the parameters -e and -m,
chpasswd: options -e and -m are mutually exclusive
I have sent a bug over the package user-setup,
