Description of problem:

A fix made to schroot on the Fedora 20 branch did not make it to Fedora 21. See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1045006

schroot fails to start a new session. The error message is as follows:

E: root1-92601c5b-3d12-4b72-96b8-6953979a0cc3: Failed to lock chroot: /var/lib/schroot/session/root1-92601c5b-3d12-4b72-96b8-6953979a0cc3: Failed to write session file: Permission denied
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

schroot.x86_64                       1.6.5-6.fc21

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to start an schroot session (schroot -c name)

Actual results:
Error, because the binary cannot write to /var/lib/schroot/session/

Expected results:
A shell within the chroot.
