Hey Neil,

Can you please re-run this with "--- schroot -d ...", to get debugging
output of adt-virt-schroot?

Not quite, "unstable" is a chroot name, not a session ID. The latter
doesn't seem to work:

$ schroot -c sid -b

$ schroot --location -c sid-amd64-cf55a0df-a987-47ed-b4b4-7afaed7becec
E: sid-amd64-cf55a0df-a987-47ed-b4b4-7afaed7becec: Chroot not found

$ schroot --location --all-sessions
