So now we consistently use the nss configuration from the "host" side?  
If so I think that makes sense.  What I ended up doing is just 
installing nss-altfiles on the host side - it's harmless there if 
/usr/lib/passwd doesn't exist.

I think this OK, but long term, I'd like to move towards something more 
declarative, like:

AddSystemUser: polkit

That could then be processed by the host system however it wants, 
rather than
relying on running /usr/sbin/useradd inside the chroot which then the 
host system
picks up.
