I have that weird error message, in Debian GNU/Hurd; look at the
following console snapshot:
goedel:~# adduser --quiet --system --home /etc/login --gecos "Not logged
in" --no-create-home login
adduser: --group, --ingroup, and --gid options are mutually exclusive.

This adduser command was taken from hurd.postinst (where it gives the
same error). The same command run in debian/GNU/linux works ok...

I there's something I can do to provide more information...
