Description of problem:

5000. If using system-config-users and clicking add group, it takes the next
Both should work the same.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
Group when groupadd is used is in the 5000's
Group when config-system-users is used, is in the 500's.
Both should have been in the 5000's.
s-c-users uses libuser, which in turn uses /etc/libuser.conf, not login.defs.
