Anyhow, I have an all hamm system (up to date against my mirror as of
24 hours ago, giving me adduser version 3.8) and in response to your
query I ran "adduser <new_user_name>", answered the questions, and it
adduser is a perl script, and bug#17393 reports perl segfaulting and
dumping core on a simple script. Whereas Vitaly Belostotsky provided
a four line script which does this consistently, I have a couple
hundred line script which does this much more sporadically and is
highly dependent on its input data (and is even sensitive to print
statements that I added for debugging purposes). Since adduser reads
system information, it could be that the data it gets from your system
is just right to trigger this bug.
I bumped the severity of bug#17393 up to important yesterday.
