The problem is that casper creates the user in question during system
startup - so your rc files may be overwritten, they may belong to
someone else, and probably a whole lot of other unpleasantnesses.

The most convenient way to work around this is to put all those files
in /root/debian-live/config/chroot_localincludes/etc/skel - that way,
when casper creates the user in question, it will copy those files
into the user's home directory, proper permissions and all.

Hope that helps,
