Lucid containers don't have sudo set up

Bug Description

With the latest ubuntu template change, the "ubuntu" user in the Lucid containers no longer have sudo access and needs to be manually added.

There's a temporary workaround (from outside your container): chroot /var/lib/lxc/<container>/rootfs passwd

  [ Serge Hallyn ]
  * 0048-warn-if-container-started: If container startup fails because the
    container is already running, give an error message to that effect.

  * 0049-ubuntu-template-sudo-and-cleanup: Always make the user part of the
    sudo group. This group has been around since at least 10.04 and is more
    reliable than the admin group. Still add the user to the admin group
    until 12.04 as some tool expect that. (LP: #938752)
    Also fix a minor layout issue in the generate LXC config.
