The fact that environ is NULL in gdb is apparently 'expected' (even though it is wrong) - gdb is looking at the wrong version of the symbol.

So, after some issues with LD_LIBRARY_PATH in my test env, it seems that it is not possible to recreate this failure on a hardy in a precise/quantal schroot.

The question also still remains as to why this problem is seen when building lp:upstart, but not when building lp:ubuntu/upstart for Ubuntu. Building lp:upstart in a virt or non-virt PPA gives the same failures.
