[Adduser-devel] Bug#214546: adduser complains about insecure PATH setting when running setuid

This problem is obviously related to the special taint mode which is
enforced by the perl interpreter when invoking adduser via super. If you
use sudo as wrapper to gain superuser access, the problem doesn't occur.

I'll try to figure out the differences and create a patch.
