[Adduser-devel] Bug#364170: Fix for documentation of adduser

"If an user with an uid in the system range (or if the uid
is specified, with that) does already exist, adduser will exit with a warning."
This is unclear and slightly bad English. How about:
"If a user with the same name already exists in the system uid range
(or, if the uid is specified, if a user with that uid already exists),
adduser will exit with a warning."
There are two points here:
1. "a uid", not "an uid".
2. The original sentence implies that adduser stops if there's *any*
user in the system range, not just one with the same name.
