Description of problem:
after minimal (and posibly most custom and maybe other predefined too)
install /etc/passwd contains users which are not needed with home
directories which does not exist yet.

should be probably fixed by modifying post install scripts for several
other packages.

How reproducible:

For directories/packages contained in the setup package, this really
can't change due to legacy issues.
