Having actually played around with this some more I see that using
pacman is useless without setting up all the unionfs stuff. However,
what is wrong with removing the $CHROOT_SHELL/rw directory when
something like this happens? Apart from having to fix
$CHROOT_SHELL/rw/etc/sudoers (makechrootpkg appears to stuff up adding
the nobody user), I don't see any problem here. I could be missing
something.... How else do people clean up the chroot?

Turns out it is a pacman bug. If I have three packages (a, b and c)
where b depends on a and c depends on b, then a "pacman -Rs a c" fails.
I am making a pactest up for this now.
