it works for me here, what errors do you get (both lenny or testing)?
what version of cdebootstrap or debootstrap are you using?

sid is currently completely broken (not realted to debian-live):
15:58:13 < panthera> sid was never broken on so many points as it is now
15:58:43 < panthera> libsasl (fixed now), cdebootstrap (fixed too),
e2fsutils (fixed as well),
15:59:06 < panthera> and now dpkg is fucked; not speaking of that i
should prepare that l-m-e-2.6 uploads RSN

I've not tried it with casper, but with live-initramfs it just works.

i think that is a good idea. unfortunately, i'm not yet that cached up
to the snapshotting/persistency functionality, but i will think of it
when i'll come to it soon.
