It would be nice if you could describe your setup in more detail (or
even provide the hook scripts somewhere). I tried a A00login hookscript
that invokes in interactive bash, but for some reason it exits
immediately when invoked by pbuilder:

 -> user script /var/cache/pbuilder/build//1695/tmp/hooks/A00login finished
 su: Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info.
