Comment 2 for bug 1476662

No, only tested on Ubuntu Trusty. I do not have other test machine at hand at the moment. Could you run

strace -s256 -f /bin/sh -c "/usr/bin/lxc-start --name [guestname]" 2>&1 | tee /tmp/test.log

with a container where init is replaced with /bin/true (or just empty file) and send me the log?
