Bug#613214: use libpam-krb5 for uidNumbers greater than 10000 only (as opposed to the default > 1000)

Then I suspect you are doing it wrong. If you want a local user, you
need to add --uid 500 or so to adduser. :)
If you want adduser to create local users by default, ie with uids in
the 500-1000 range, you should probably edit /etc/adduser.conf to
change its behaviour. These are the relevant settings:
# FIRST_[GU]ID to LAST_[GU]ID inclusive is the range of UIDs of dynamically
# allocated user accounts/groups.
