Bug#657550: live-build: Using preseed to set user default groups fails

Package: live-build
Version: 3.0~a42-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

Attempting to add a default group for the live user as per section
494/5 of the manual



   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

Adding a line to /usr/share/live/build/scripts/build/lb_chroot_preseed
confirms that my file is considered for copying to the chroot directory

The contents of the preseed file are shown below:

root@ingrid:~# cat smrg-live/config/preseed/my.preseed.chroot 
user-setup passwd/user-default-groups string audio cdrom dip floppy video plugdev netdev powerdev scanner bluetooth iocard

(the group iocard, created by the installed package libcomedi0, has
been added to the default list).

Invoking debconf-show user-setup within the live system shows a different
set of default groups, including debian-tor.

It is possible to add a script in /lib/live/config using the
includes.chroot mechanism to check whether user is in group iocard and
add user to that group if required, but the method described in the
manual does not work.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

The default group of user was not set correctly

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

That the groups to which user belonged were as listed in the preseed file.
