unfortunately, the exact details are fuzzy as this was posted to the old 
upstream shadow list quite a while ago before it died, and i dont think the 
mail archives are available for me to refer to.

basically, useradd misbehaves when not using the "-g" option wrt the 
USERGROUPS_ENAB option.  the useradd code has logic for handling of an '-n' 
flag, but it never fully implemented it.
