Then, we could maybe clean this in Chroot.pm:

sub add_local_user {
    my ($chroot_tmp, $run, $config, $luser, $uid) = @_;

    # change the builder user to the local user id
    # FIXME it seems that unionfs does not handle well the change of the
    #       uid of files
    # if (system(qq|sudo chroot $chroot_tmp usermod -u $run->{uid} builder|)) {

Though sadly we lost the actual commit that did that due to the 2007 crash
