[Adduser-devel] Bug#440801: adduser: Option --firstuid no longer applied to GID's of new users' user group

In previous Debian releases the commandline option --firstuid was also applied to the GID of the user group for a newly
created user (where USERGROUPS=yes) as well as to the user's UID.
In Debian Etch, --firstuid applies only to the user's UID. The first GID for user groups can only be set from the
configuration file parameter FIRST_GID.
This is inconvenient in systems where the administrator routinely creates users with user groups which they wish to keep in
different UID/GID ranges.
