Do you run this command as root? You don't use lxc --sudo, and
Debian's LXC packages don't support user containers (very well).

This seems unrelated to LXC. Just to make sure, do you get the same
with "null"?

At first sight I'd say you are running adt-run from a current
directory which does not yet exist any more. Perhaps a build tree that
got removed in a different shell?
