reopen 351681

Hmm.  It looks like this bug may have re-surfaced:

  # adduser nonexistent
  Adding user `nonexistent'...
  Adding new group `nonexistent' (1002).
  groupadd: GID 1002 is not unique
  adduser: `/usr/sbin/groupadd -g 1002 nonexistent' returned error code 4.  Aborting.

  # adduser --version | head -1
  adduser: add a user or group to the system.  Version 3.84

I'd be happy to provide more information or perform further tests as
needed.  On this system, postfix is already assigned group 1002.
