Description Robin 2005-11-25 16:03:41 EST
Description of problem:
When adding groups, if login.defs GID_MIN is set to 5000, groupadd starts at
5000.  If using system-config-users and clicking add group, it takes the next
avaiable group.

Both should work the same.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Change GID_MIN to 5000 in /etc/login.defs
2.  In CLI, as root, typein groupadd and create a test group.
3.  In GUI, select Desktop > system settings > users and groups.
4.  Select add group.
5.  Create the group.
6.  See the group number for the created group.
Actual results:
Group when groupadd is used is in the 5000's
Group when config-system-users is used, is in the 500's.

Expected results:
Both should have been in the 5000's.

s-c-users uses libuser, which in turn uses /etc/libuser.conf, not login.defs.
