Description of problem:
if you try to add a user to a group using groupmems it produces a segmentation
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
man page for this shows System Management Commands 07/30/2006
# file /usr/sbin/groupmems

dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, stripped
Steps to Reproduce:
1.make a group
2.attempt to add a user to it by groupmems -a user -g testgroup
/usr/sbin/groupmems -a customer -g test
Don't know I've never seen it work. I assume nothing is output.
This was recreated using an i586 or an i686 vmware fedora core 8

/usr/sbin/groupmems is not part of coreutils but of shadowutils. Reassigning to
correct component and owner.
