[Adduser-devel] Bug#730107: adduser --system and addgroup --system should ignore remote directory services

Package: adduser
Version: 3.113+nmu3

adduser --system or addgroup --system refuse to proceed
if the name is already provided by a remote directory
service for passwd or group. On the next reboot the user
or group names cannot be resolved, if the (unrelated!)
directory service is not available yet.

The system users and groups should be defined locally,
independent from the availability of a foreign directory
