Hmm, no idea off-hand.  You probably already did this, but double check
the versions of pungi and lorax being used inside the chroot.  They have
changed recently, so make sure you are using the latest versions of
each.  Are you able to upload your mock root.log for review?

I've also cc'd Martin Gracik who maintains lorax to see if he has any
debugging tips.
