[Adduser-devel] Bug#643561: adduser with personal groups produces non-matching gids

Package: adduser
Version: 3.112+nmu2

I did this:
 # adduser keir
  [ answer the prompts ]

 # id keir
 uid=1011(keir) gid=1020(keir) groups=1020(keir)

But this doesn't work because pam_mask requires the ids to be
identical.  And I agree with pam, really.

adduser should pick the first value which is available as both a uid
and a gid.
