Thanks for the tips!

Here is  the list of  package that  name the user  with the name  of the

 - spampd: spampd
 - spong: spong
 - stunnel4: stunnel4
 - sympa: sympa
 - varnish: varnish
 - vdradmin-am: vdradmin-am
 - zabbix: zabbix

The packages  that use a different  name but with no  apparent prefix or
suffix (maybe gforge should not be in this category) :
 - vde2: vde2-net
 - ez-ipupdate: ez-ipupd
 - postfwd: postfw
 - kolabd: kolab
 - openntpd: ntpd
 - tinyerp-server: terp
 - policyd-weight: polw
 - zope-common: zopeuser
 - postgresql-common: postgres
 - pymilter: spf-milter-python
 - nfs-utils: statd
 - nss-ldapd: nslcd
 - net-snmp: snmp
 - gforge: anonscm-gforge scm-gforge www-gforge
 - hylafax: faxmaster
 - hal: haldaemon
 - dbus: messagebud
 - boxbackup: bbstored
 - calendarserver: caldavd
 - dtc-xen: dtc-xen-user
 - tomcat5.5: tomcat55
 - ident2: identd

 - nagios3: nagios
 - lastfmsubmitd: lastfm
 - gsmlib: gsmsms
 - mumble: mumble-server
 - openssh: sshd
 - fsp: ftp
 - vsftpd: ftp
 - bind9: bind
 - amavisd-new: amavis
 
And the ones that uses a prefix:
 - exim4: Debian-exim
 - lldpd: _lldpd

The list was built by hand. I hope to have not forgotten anything.

Some random remarks:
 - nobody uses prefixes
 - there are collisions (fsp, vsftpd)
 - some  names collides with  real user names  that I have  met (iodine,
   spong, prayer), this may vary from systems to systems but there is no
   way to override a username

BTW, the problem is similar with groups, especially since the default is
now to create a group for each user.
