Well if you didn't set disable_root: 0 then not being able to login as
root is most likely because of that. Not being able to login as ubuntu
user though *could* be caused by the cloud-init having a new behavior in
10.10 that it does not setup /home/ubuntu/.ssh folder if it does not
already exist (that is purely a guess, I haven't looked at the latest
version of cloud-init since the 10.04 Alestic AMI). The preparation in
starcluster 0.91.2's createimage command does blast all .ssh folders in
/home before imaging so if the new cloud-init scripts do have this
behavior then that would be why you can't login to ubuntu user after
imaging with createimage.

I'll have a look at the issues creating a 10.10 AMI when I get some time.
