It was recently reported to Ubuntu that adduser doesn't support underscores
This appears to be an accidental regression introduced when refactoring the
code out into AdduserCommon.pm, since the last previous mention of
underscores in the changelog is this:
adduser (3.63) unstable; urgency=low
* allow underscores again. Bug in the regexp. Thanks to Steve

Attached is a patch to restore this behavior.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
