removing problemes with deluser
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I found a bug with adduser package that deluser will remove system
directories like /bin (or like / as other user found). This will happen
if the homedirectory is /bin of some system accounts which should be
removed and the option REMOVE_HOME in /etc/deluser.conf is set to 1.
This Bug / Problem renders the system unusable so the severity is
critical. The (co-)maintainer see this as only wishlist and told me to
complain about this in this list.
Maybe the Severity of critical is not absolutely correct and should be
important. (I think, it is.) But the severity of wishlist is impossible!
More over as also other Users have had the same problem and see it
similar to me. Maybe it is not a bug of deluser than of the debian
police but it is a critical bug.
The both bug reports are: #293559 and #271829
Please reply to fix the problem as soon as possible.
Ps. For me the bug is not a problem anymore as I do not do use deluser
anymore and remove a user by hand with vipw. But I do not think that the
problem is gone therewith as for other users the problem still sleeps
until they trigger the problem.
