Faced with subsequent build attempts and *no* user created by the
Debian Live scripts, I *explicitily* specified an user name of my own
that I could grep in config/* files. The result was the same: no
regular user name and no explicit name either.

Whatever the reason, *that* procedure got rid of the regular user
issue and now I have no problems with that aspect.

If an end user follows rudimentary instructions, the Debian Live
scripts should provide satisfactory results. As it is now, one must
dig into the workings of the Debian Live scripts to attempt to figure
out where the issues are being introduced.

Of course, it should not -from a very specific and theoretic
development environment. However in general hardware platforms there
are issues unresolved/unfinished affecting the outcome.
