well, that's a debootstrap issue, not related to live-helper.
Although you are free to use debootstrap, I stronly recommend
cdebootstrap for one reason: it has less bugs and is actively maintained
(debootstrap is on 'NMU if you think there is a problem'-only mode).
One other anoying bug of debootstrap is, that it doesn't create the
right device set in /dev; e.g. one cannot compile the bash package in it
(not that this is here of importance, but I just mentioned it anyway).

stuck in the NEW queue, copy /usr/share/exampes/live.sources.list to
