When are dpkg.list & dpkg.selections generated, before chroot 
installation or after it? 

I bumped into a strange problem that grml-live is installing packages not 
in the dpkg.list & dpkg.selections -- I "thought" that I remove all java 
packages from my source package list, then "confirmed" that with the 

$ grep -i java /var/log/fai/depen/last/dpkg.selections || echo no found
no found

$ grep -i java /var/log/fai/depen/last/dpkg.list 
ii  libmozjs2d                                                             The Mozilla SpiderMonkey 
JavaScript library

However, grml-live still failed because of java packages:
