This problem is known, but please fill a bug request for it using the BTS.

While this remain unfixed*, I use this sequence instead of just lh_build (in a 
Makefile, but the sequence could be obviously valid also outside it):

- ---- -
        su-to-root -c lh_bootstrap
        su-to-root -c lh_chroot
        su-to-root -c "cp -a 
override_config/chroot_local-includes/etc/resolv.conf chroot/etc"
        su-to-root -c lh_binary
--- - ---

*Lazyness disclaimer: I'm looking to fix live-initramfs bugs in my spare time, 
for this I just used a simple work-around as you saw :-)
