We've had a few instances of this recently: developers have added
users/groups to the system but not implemented the corresponding
postinstall checks/fixes. Upgrading a system to 4.0 thus results in a
rather odd state of the password and group files. I think I have a PR
open about it, but I've lost track of the number. I probably should have
just fixed it -- I was hoping the developer who added whichever user it
was I noticed missing the postinstall check would do it though. I'm
going to be a little busy today but I'll try to remember to fix some
of these later if I get a spare minute.
Something we could do better in the future.
