Jelle - just checking, you're describing a system that, to me, is quite
unusual for debootstrap. Can I just check, does a completely normal
Debian debootstrap work under the same circumstances? If it does, can
you send me / attach details of:
$ sudo chroot /$path/
# dpkg --get-selections
# hostname -f

Thanks.

Do you have a normal Debian desktop that you can test with?

Simply because someone didn't remove it from the CC: when using
Reply-all. ;-)
